Please join Professor Rick Banks in a conversation with Harry Bremond, who in the late 1960s became one of the first partners at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. From that perch, and as one of the few black lawyers between San Francisco and San Jose, Harry Bremond witnessed and shaped the growth of Silicon Valley. He represented companies that would transform technology, American society and the world. He mentored generations of lawyers who themselves would shape the Valley. And through it all he remained a steadfast advocate for racial justice. A leader and founder of the pro bono movement within law firms, Bremond has been recognized for his racial equity work by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, the Equal Justice Society, and the Charles Houston Bar Association. This remarkable lawyer has been described, appropriately, as a Black Legend of Silicon Valley. This rare opportunity to learn from his insights, experiences and reflections is not to be missed!
