Susan Baker Appointed Pro Bono Partner

Susan D. Baker has been named as the firm’s first Pro Bono Partner at Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP. Susan has demonstrated community engagement throughout her career at the firm. Pro bono work is a linchpin of the legal profession and Niles Barton has long been committed to legal aid organizations and supporting attorneys who are involved in pro bono. Many of our attorneys actively provide pro bono services to individuals and organizations in the community who desperately need legal assistance. While the firm has pursued pro bono work for decades, it has become a firm initiative to increase and improve these efforts. Susan will be tasked with designing and implementing a strategy for a firm-wide pro bono program.

Ms. Baker is a partner in the Corporate Department of Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP. She represents business clients in full range of matters, including entity formation and modification, owner agreements, contract review and negotiation, real estate, and, in particular, trademark and copyright issues.

“Given her long standing commitment to community service Susan is uniquely qualified for this effort,” says Craig D. Roswell, Managing Partner of Niles, Barton & Wilmer, LLP. Ms. Baker has been extremely active in her community for many years. She assists growing businesses through the Maryland Small Business Development Center’s CEO Accelerator Program. She is a member of the Board of Directors of Sisters Circle, a mentorship-focused non-profit based in Baltimore, and has also mentored  two young women through the program  for over 10 years.
