Reena Bajowala, partner at Jenner & Block LLP, has been named a 2015 recipient of Womenetics’ POW! Awards, which honor women who demonstrate business leadership and community impact. Reena served as both a PILI Intern and a PILI Fellow, and is now a member of PILI’s Board of Directors, having previously served on our Alumni Network Leadership Council. An outstanding attorney and dedicated pro bono practitioner, Reena is being recognized for her leadership in the legal profession and her service to the community. From the Womenetics website:
“Reena Bajowala relied on her confidence and the unyielding desire to right a wrong as she battled to seek restitution and then payment for a victim of human trafficking…. After years of tenacious legal pursuit, Reena finally presented her client a six-figure restitution check. “Delivering this check meant so much – she would have a steady place to live, pay for medical treatments that were withheld by her from her traffickers and start planning for a life she had not yet begun living.” As part of Jenner & Block’s pro bono program, Reena represented her client without charge.”
Congratulations to Reena on this very well-deserved award, and thank you for your dedicated service!
