Tristan Axelrod, Boston-based Bankruptcy & Corporate Restructuring Practice Group associate, will join the 2021 class of the Boston Bar Association’s Public Interest Leadership Program (PILP). PILP promotes civic engagement and public service by advancing the leadership role of lawyers in service to their community and their profession.
The selective program features a diverse group of talented attorneys who have graduated law school within the past ten years and demonstrated a commitment to pro bono and public service. After completing the 10-month program, PILP participants enter a growing network of more than 200 accomplished PILP alumni who provide mentoring and support to their successors. This unique program serves as a platform for the next generation of Boston lawyers to learn from and connect with leaders in the legal, business and public service sectors and to gain the critical skills to grow as an effective advocate and voice in the community.
Tristan focuses his practice on bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings and related litigation. An active member of his community, Tristan provides legal assistance, on a pro bono basis, to individuals who are unable to afford private counsel in connection with bankruptcy and housing matters. In addition, he serves as chair of the 175 Beacon St. Tenants’ Association and as co-chair of the Boston Bar Association Bankruptcy Law Steering Committee.
