Changes are afoot at the Pro Bono Partnership. The organization, which is dedicated to providing business and transactional legal services to non-profits serving disadvantaged people in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, announced yesterday that it elected Mark Nordstrom chairman of its board of directors.
