Day Pitney LLP has announced that it has entered into an agreement to serve as pro bono outside general counsel for the International Spy Museum. Located in Washington, DC, the Spy Museum, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, brings the world of intelligence to life – illuminating how it has changed the course of history and continues to play a significant role today. People from across the globe come to the Museum to explore an objective, unbiased account of the history of intelligence and espionage and to make better sense of current events and the world around them.
"Day Pitney's presence in Washington is growing, and assisting the International Spy Museum in carrying out its mission gives our DC lawyers, as well as their colleagues in our other offices, the opportunity to contribute our expertise to an important educational institution in our nation's capital," said Stanley A. Twardy, Jr., the firm's Managing Partner.
The International Spy Museum, which opened in Washington, DC on July 19, 2002, is the only public museum in the United States solely dedicated to espionage and the only one in the world to provide a global perspective on an all-but-invisible profession that has shaped history and continues to have a significant impact on world events.
The Spy Museum features the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display, many of which are being seen by the public for the first time. These artifacts illuminate the work of famous spies and pivotal espionage actions as well as help bring to life the strategies and techniques of the men and women behind some of the most secretive espionage missions in world history. For more information on the International Spy Museum, including their imminent move to their own building in DC's growing Southwest quadrant, visit www.spymuseum.org.
Day Pitney attorneys Steven A. Cash and Evan C. Reese will lead the engagement, with Cash bringing his extensive national security and intelligence background to bear, while Reese contributes his long experience in providing counsel to corporations. "We are very excited to be working with the International Spy Museum, and look forward to introducing our clients to this fascinating institution," said Cash. The engagement will build, in a pro bono context, on Day Pitney's long-standing General Counsel Services practice.
