Boston Business Journal Recognizes WilmerHale as Top Charitable Contributor
The Boston Business Journal ranked WilmerHale as the 2014 Top Charitable Contributor in Massachusetts. The firm, ranked against 79 other companies, provided the most non-monetary contributions—more than $31 million—to Massachusetts-based charitable organizations during fiscal year 2014.
The firm’s commitment to pro bono and community service dates back for nearly a century. Today the firm continues to honor the legacy of its founders through an innovative community partnership model that brings attorneys and staff together as volunteers, to make a decisive impact on issues facing local communities. In Boston the firm partners with Hyde Square Task Force and dedicates multi-year financial support, pro bono legal representation, volunteer service and in-kind donations. Annually this nonprofit serves more than 1,000 youths from Jamaica Plain, Roxbury and across Boston through leadership development, college preparation, arts and cultural enrichment, youth-led community organizing, and positive community-building events.
WilmerHale, along with other honorees, was recognized at the Boston Business Journal’s annual Corporate Citizenship Summit on September 17 at the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts.
