Decisions will be made about which buildings besides the original Tesla laboratory are safe to keep and adapt for future science center use.• We are trying to use our resources carefully, and our legal representation is being done pro bono. Our lawyers are partners in Squire Sanders, a large multi-national legal firm. We have been enjoying the work of four lawyers from that firm.• We are soon going to send out requests for experts in architecture, design, landscaping, lighting, plumbing, heating, etc. It is possible that we will get some of the work done “pro bono” by qualified people in those fields.
