The National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS) is proud to honor Fish & Tsang LLP (F&T) for their leadership and spirit of volunteerism. As a firm, F&T believe in aligning with organizations doing important and pioneering work. F&T has a history of corporate philanthropy since its founding in 2007. In specific regard to MS, F&T Partner Mei Tsang has close ties to MS after her longtime family friend Virginia Phillips, an Indiana-based artist, was diagnosed in 1998. Each year, Walk MS Orange County hosts nearly 5,000 participants and volunteers who are mobilized to raise critical funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis. F&T’s involvement with the NMSS marks the first time an Orange County-based business has held the title sponsorship for this event that has been part of the Orange County philanthropic landscape for more than three decades.
The Society sought to align with an authentic, committed partner, which is exactly what we found in our relationship with F&T. “As an IP firm, everyone at Fish & Tsang deeply values science, which is often at the core of the groundbreaking work undertaken by our clients,” said F&T Founding Partner Robert (Bob) D. Fish. “When presented with the opportunity to help support scientific discoveries being made to find a cure for a devastating disease like MS, we jumped at it passionately and hope to help move a step closer to a world free of MS.” Bob Fish & Mei Tsang exemplify leadership in the MS movement by creating opportunities and participating alongside their employees in a plethora of MS events. In addition to its title sponsorship for Walk MS, the partners rallied the firm to create a Walk MS team comprised of nearly forty employees, clients and family members! F&T earned their spot as a top fundraising team in 2015 and could be found serving coffee to all the walkers. Not only did F&T employees walk the Walk, volunteer and fundraise, they could also be seen cycling down the coast in Bike MS, bidding in the silent auction at Bubbles and Brunch, rolling around in the mud at MuckFest MS and participating in many other events the Society hosts. This year’s Bike MS team earned their spot as a top fundraising team which marks the second time in one year the firm hit top fundraising status, an incredible milestone! In addition to their participation year-round in Society events, F&T hosts spectacular fundraising events that not only encourages participation from all its employees but also spreads awareness about multiple sclerosis to a much larger audience. On behalf of all people affected by multiple sclerosis, we’d like to thank Fish & Tsang for their dedication, support and leadership to find a cure for MS!
