Microsoft Makes Minority-Owned Firm Premier Counsel

June 25 (Bloomberg) -- Emery Harlan, chairman of Gonzalez Saggio & Harlan LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about his firm being named a Premier Provider for Legal and Corporate Affairs by Microsoft Corp.

Harlan, in this "Rainmakers" episode, describes his firm's selection into the elite group as a "Jackie Robinson moment" for the legal profession.
