The New York State Bar honored WilmerHale with its 2014 Empire State Counsel recognition for generous pro bono contributions. This annual recognition specifically highlights firms for providing low-income, vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals and families access to the civil justice system.
For decades, WilmerHale has had a significant record of pro bono representation and community service. The firm’s commitment to providing a voice for the least powerful is demonstrated by pro bono work that range from cases of national importance before the US Supreme Court to litigation on behalf of individuals who lack the means to secure necessities as fundamental as housing, adequate medical care and a safe home environment.
All honorees were celebrated at an award luncheon on January 29, 2015 at the Hilton Midtown in New York. NY.
