United States: Washington Business Journal Honors WilmerHale With Corporate Philanthropy Award For Third Consecutive Year
Last Updated: July 4 2014

For the third consecutive year the Washington Business Journal has named WilmerHale to its top "Corporate Philanthropists" list, honoring the Washington DC metro area's most active and inspirational companies and nonprofits who have made a difference in their communities through both financial and volunteer philanthropic work. Out of the 50 businesses recognized, WilmerHale is one of eight law firms and is ranked second for the most local giving among firms.

WilmerHale not only has a deep history of firmwide commitment to pro bono work, but also operates under a focused philanthropy model, allowing the firm to concentrate its resources and time on a group of organizations in local communities, with a goal toward long-term relationships and capacity building. This includes financial support, pro bono legal representation, in-kind donations and volunteer service. Specifically, numerous volunteer opportunities are offered through WilmerHale's Washington DC office, with both lawyers and staff joining together to make a difference. Longstanding community partnerships in DC include Bread for the City and See Forever Foundation/Maya Angelou Schools.

WilmerHale and all other honorees were celebrated for their dedication and generosity at the Corporate Philanthropy Awards on June 19, 2014. The Washington Business Journal's "Corporate Philanthropists" list issue was released on June 19, 2014.
