Baseball Scholarship Fund Honors Former Robinson Bradshaw Managing PartnerPDF
Robinson Bradshaw is pleased to announce the Coach Robert G. Griffin Scholarship Fund, giving all children the opportunity to play at Myers Park Trinity Little League. The firm created the scholarship fund in honor of Griffin, who stepped down as managing partner last fall. The $10,000 fund was generously matched by a donation from founding partner Russell M. Robinson II and his wife, Sally.
A longtime MPTLL coach, Griffin is also a board member, an Executive Committee member and an inaugural member of the MPTLL Volunteer Hall of Fame. In honor of his commitment to serving others, the scholarship will ensure that regardless of families’ financial situations, all children will have the chance to play T-ball, baseball or softball with MPTLL.
“Robert Griffin is very good at taking care of things,” said Blaine Sanders, a partner at Robinson Bradshaw. “He took care of our law firm for nearly 20 years, and he has taken care of Myers Park Trinity Little League and its players for over 35 years – especially the children in the program who, for financial reasons, wouldn’t otherwise have been able to play. The firm is pleased to make a contribution consistent with Robert’s generous service and appreciates that Russell Robinson has joined us in honoring Robert.”
Griffin practices corporate law with Robinson Bradshaw, focusing on mergers and acquisitions and executive compensation, and he served as the first managing partner from 1996 until 2015. During his tenure, Griffin led the firm to devote significant resources to community service and pro bono assistance. He was an original signatory of the Mecklenburg County Bar’s General Counsel and Managing Partners’ Diversity Benchmark Initiative, aiming at increasing diversity within local law firms and legal departments.
