The Co-Founders of Novus Law also founded the Novus Foundation to support educational and other community-strengthening initiatives in the places where the firm does business. These initiatives include providing operating capital for a program dedicated to bringing music education to inner-city children in Chicago and the development of an elementary school for leadership in rural India.
