Whether Betsy Stone, an associate at Foley & Lardner, is working with a Fortune 500 company on environmental matters or representing a pro bono client, the attention given remains the same.

“I don’t draw a distinction between my pro bono and billable work. I believe pro bono representation is a social responsibility inherent in the privileges of being a practicing attorney,” Stone said.

“I chose to work at Foley, in part, because of the firm’s commitment to conscience and community,” she added.

Stone is part of the Business Litigation & Dispute Resolution Practice Group in the firm’s Milwaukee office, where she focuses on environmental litigation and advising manufacturing companies on distribution network management.

“These areas offer the exact intellectual rigor and variety that drew me to the law in the first place,” she said.

As corporations focus more on environmental, social and governance issues, along with environmental justice, Stone helps her clients grow by improving the sustainability of their products and product distribution, said Andy Wronski, managing partner of Foley & Lardner’s Milwaukee office.

“Betsy’s commitment to delivering exceptional legal services, combined with her in-depth industry knowledge, allows her to provide innovative solutions that address the unique challenges faced by manufacturers and commercial clients,” he said.

A member of Foley & Lardner’s Racial Justice & Equity Practice Group, Stone has put in hundreds of hours of pro-bono work, earning a spot on the 2021 Eastern District of Wisconsin Pro-Bono Honor Roll.

Stone is the firm’s summer program coordinator and oversees the Milwaukee summer associate program. With her help, the Milwaukee office had a female-majority summer associate class that ranked first in the state and 11th nationally by American Lawyer.

“It’s rewarding mentoring new talent and watching them hit their stride as practicing attorneys in short order,” she said.
