Passion and dedication to what he believes can make a difference bring Hale Boggs a considerable share of rewards through his career and volunteer efforts. In 1998, Hale founded his firm’s Palo Alto office from scratch. Starting out in an apartment space, he and an associate brought together a team which would eventually outperform Manatt’s other offices across the country.

Hale’s association with BizWorld Foundation not only fulfills his philanthropic realizations but also builds connections with business prospects—this while seeing children learn more about entrepreneurship and the underlying entrepreneurial spirit.

“I have met through the BizWorld relationships people who have turned out to be terrific clients for my law firm, people that I’ve done other deals with in other settings,” Hale says. “And so it’s been a great networking thing for me and my company while at the same time really benefiting these kids, the school program and the classrooms that we go into. It really has been a terrific organization.”
