In July, we announced that, as a Baltimore-based business law firm, one way in which the attorneys and staff at Rosenberg Martin Greenberg are uniquely suited to assist in addressing some of the drivers of economic disparity in Baltimore City’s Black community is by expanding access to legal representation for early-stage Black-owned businesses. In turn, we developed the Building Black-Owned Businesses in Baltimore initiative to provide complimentary legal services to support Black entrepreneurs and their businesses.
This week, after many qualified applications were vetted, five companies were selected as finalists in our 2020 initiative. We are thrilled to announce that our engagement with these incredible companies begins on September 15th and will last until December 31, 2021. We look forward to working with these clients and helping them to grow their businesses and build more Black-owned equity in our community. Stay tuned for more updates on the initiative, as well as the date that next year’s applications will be released.
