Blank Rome Partner and Pro Bono Services Director Kathy Ochroch has been elected to the Nationalities Service Center’s Board of Trustees. Ms. Ochroch will serve on an 18-member board charged with the governance of the agency, and will help to oversee the agency’s mission of assisting immigrants and refugees in the Delaware Valley region.

Founded in 1921, the Nationalities Services Center (NSC) provides assistance and a safe haven to refugees, asylees and immigrants from all countries, religious faiths and ethnic backgrounds.

At Blank Rome, Ms. Ochroch is responsible for the organization and implementation of the firm-wide pro bono program, and assists attorneys and paralegals in finding meaningful pro bono opportunities, and coordinates training and resources to support their pro bono activities. She also maintains a commercial litigation practice, which focuses on representing clients in trusts and estates litigation, media and first amendment law and product liability.

Ms. Ochroch has earned much recognition for her pro bono work, including the 2005 Craig M. Perry Community Service Award by the Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association and the 2004 Pennsylvania Bar Association Pro Bono Award. Ms. Ochroch was listed among the 2007 Philadelphia Business Journal “40 Under 40,” and was named a “2003 Lawyer on the Fast Track” by the Legal Intelligencer. She was also honored as a “Distinguished Advocate” by the Support Center for Child Advocates in 2003.

Ms. Ochroch received her law degree, with high honors, from George Washington University Law School, where she obtained Order of the Coif status. She holds a Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, from Dickinson College.

Craig L. Hymowitz, Blank Rome litigator, organized a Federalist Society event with U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement in Philadelphia on July 18, 2007. This is the fourth consecutive year that Mr. Clement has addressed the Philadelphia chapter of the Federalist Society. Mr. Hymowitz said the event has drawn ever-larger audiences.

Mr. Clement is the U.S. government’s chief legal advocate before the Supreme Court. At 40, he is the youngest person to hold the post in over a century. “It is a chance to see one of the leading litigators in the nation,” Mr. Hymowitz said of Mr. Clement’s address. “There is no faster track for someone at his age in terms of what he has accomplished.”

In his speech, Mr. Clement said that the Supreme Court under Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., has taken a pronounced pro-business approach. He suggested that it could carry over into the next term. Like Chief Justice Roberts, Mr. Clement had been a member of the Federalist Society before joining government.

Mr. Clement said decisions limiting punitive-damage awards against corporate defendants and imposing restrictions on antitrust lawsuits suggested a distinct tilt in favor of business. He cited the May 21 decision in Bell Atlantic v. Twombly, in which the Court sided with the nation’s largest local telephone companies against consumers alleging that the firms had secretly agreed not to compete in one another’s territories.
