WilmerHale was recognized by Appleseed at its annual fundraising event “Celebrating the Power of Making a Difference” held last night at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center in Washington, DC. The firm was honored for its “outstanding pro bono program, which has worked in concert with Appleseed on several projects, and for the dedicated service of leaders at the firm on the Appleseed Board of Directors.”
