The head of Sidley Austin's pro bono and public interest law committee is heading to the Legal Services Corp. in Washington, the firm and the federal agency announced Tuesday.
The LSC's board of directors yesterday unanimously approved Sidley senior counsel Ronald Flagg as the agency's vice president for legal affairs, general counsel and corporate secretary. He starts his new job June 3.
Flagg said he is "very sad" to leave Sidley. But he said he’s "very excited" to join LSC, which doles out more money for civil legal aid than any other U.S. organization.
