The Boston Business Journal named WilmerHale to its annual list of the "Top Charitable Contributors" in Massachusetts, which recognizes the region's top corporate contributors, including the companies that gave to local nonprofits in 2012. The corporations named as "Top Charitable Contributors" were honored on September 12 at the Corporate Citizenship Summit, the annual awards ceremony. WilmerHale was the highest overall contributor among area law firms and the second largest overall giver of in-kind donations, recognized for giving more than $21 million in-kind donations in 2012 to Massachusetts-based charitable organizations. The firm is one of only three regional law firms to receive this recognition.
In addition to acknowledging top local corporate benefactors, the Corporate Citizenship Summit also recognized partnerships between firms and nonprofit organizations. WilmerHale was honored for involvement with local organizations: Hyde Square Task Force, Cathedral High School, Citizen Schools, Discovering Justice: The James D. St. Clair Education Project, United Way of Massachusetts and Merrimack Valley, and Greater Boston Legal Services.
