Nicole has been appointed to the Rhode Island Council of The New England Legal Foundation, the leading non-profit public interest law firm in the region dedicated to addressing policy and constitutional concerns related to free enterprise.
Foundation President Dan Winslow said of Ms. Benjamin, “Nicole is a leader in the Rhode Island bar. We look forward to her perspective and advice on how NELF can best advance free enterprise, property rights, rule of law, and inclusive growth in Rhode Island.”
“Our state Advisory Councils,” Mr. Winslow added, “help develop our Foundation’s positions on public policy matters, and they often recommend legal advocacy for consideration by our Board of Directors on issues of importance to the region’s economy. The Advisory Councils also host speakers of interest to their particular sector of the economy at locations convenient to members in each state.”
The New England Legal Foundation’s ongoing mission is to champion individual economic liberties, property rights, good government based on rule of law, and inclusive economic growth. NELF challenges actions by governments and private litigants which would unreasonably intrude on the economic freedoms of individuals and business enterprises in New England and the nation. We believe that free enterprise is a linchpin of a democratic society and offers the most sustainable path to advance the American ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, including freedom from material want.
Nicole will be replacing, Shareholder John Tarantino, who served on the advisory council for twenty years.
