Mintz Member Alec Zadek Discusses Passion for Pro Bono Work in Forthcoming Book “Good Business”

Mintz is pleased to share that Member Alec Zadek will be featured in the forthcoming book, “Good Business: The Talk, Fight, Win Way to Change the World,” by Bill Novelli, for his passion and commitment to pro bono work, which is championed by the firm.

Alec is a commercial litigator with strong capabilities around fiduciary matters, corporate governance, and insurance and reinsurance. Devoted to his community, Alec is well-known for his pro bono work in Massachusetts, which focuses primarily on representing survivors of sex trafficking and domestic violence and raising awareness of legal issues impacting survivors of sex trafficking. Alec has received prestigious recognition for his professional and pro bono accomplishments, including the Adams Pro Bono Publico Award from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Services, the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce’s Ten Outstanding Young Leaders Award, and the Boston Business Journal’s 40 under 40, among other honors.

In “Good Business,” Alec is included as part of a discussion of people and organizations making a difference. In the chapter, Alec discusses his prior experience as Assistant District Attorney for Suffolk County, Massachusetts, where his commitment to pro bono representation of sex trafficking survivors, including foreign nationals, began. He also addresses the importance of institutional support from Mintz to commit substantial time and resources to pro bono efforts in addition to his billable work. Notably, this particular excerpt of the book also highlights Mintz alumna Elizabeth Kelly.

Author Bill Novelli is a Distinguished Professor of the Practice in Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business, where he started and oversees the Business for Impact center. He is the co-founder of Porter Novelli, one of the first social marketing companies and a global public relations agency. “Good Business,” which will publish February 2, 2021, is available to pre-order on Amazon and through other retailers.
