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.
