Kevin Prussia Honored with BBA Thurgood Marshall Award

Kevin Prussia Honored with BBA Thurgood Marshall Award


The Boston Bar Association (BBA) has recognized Partner Kevin Prussia with the Thurgood Marshall Award for his participation in Geddes v. City of Boston and his ongoing work to address the constitutional issues posed by the City’s current proposals for the area known as Mass. & Cass. According to the BBA, The Thurgood Marshall Award recognizes private Boston attorneys for their “extraordinary efforts to enhance the human dignity of others through improving, developing or delivering civil or criminal legal services to low-income clients in Massachusetts.”

In a statement on the BBA’s website, BBA President Hannah L. Kilson shared “[Kevin’s] work to ensure that, while addressing complicated public health and public safety issues, our government officials continue to respect and protect the civil rights and civil liberties of all of the residents of the Commonwealth regardless of their socioeconomic status is both vital and necessary. It is my privilege to acknowledge and honor that work.”

Prussia is an experienced litigator and trial lawyer, with significant experience representing leading life sciences and technology companies in major disputes involving intellectual property and other commercial matters. In addition to serving private clients, he maintains a deep pro bono practice and commitment to serving the community.

Some of Prussia’s current pro bono work includes representing a class of individuals in a high-profile immigration case against the Department of Homeland Security and serving as a monitor for one of the country’s oldest consent decrees governing the hiring practices of entry-level police and firefighters in communities across Massachusetts.
