Following last month’s recognition in the Boston Business Journal’s list of the “Largest Charitable Contributors in Massachusetts,” WilmerHale has been announced as a recipient of the publication’s Diversity Award for Corporate Social Responsibility.
The South Asian Bar Association of Greater Boston (SABA GB) nominated the firm for this recognition. Throughout its long-standing relationship with SABA GB, WilmerHale has provided unwavering stewardship and support for the young affinity bar organization, and has consistently sponsored law students pursuing public interest legal internships, while fostering valuable mentorship programs for all aspiring attorneys.
WilmerHale also supported SABA GB’s 2009 bid to host the annual North American South Asian Bar Association conference held in Boston in June 2010, which helped to raise the profile of the organization on a national level.
“WilmerHale’s consistent support allowed SABA GB to develop quality programming from the ground up and has been instrumental in allowing SABA GB to strategically develop and expand not only the organization, but in particular the many facets of the mentorship program,” said a spokesperson with SABA GB.
