Raising the Bar Raises $5M

Raising the Bar Raises $5M

Solicitor General Donald Verrilli was on hand to make remarks at the Raising the Bar reception in Covington's office this week, and there was a lot to celebrate: the 48 firms participating raised more than $5M. The honoree firms each donated a percentage of their DC office revenue to local legal services organizations.

Jenner & Block, where Verrilli used to be a partner, was one of the eight law firms that helped launch the Raising the Bar Campaign in 2011. 

Raising the Bar Raises $5M

Jess Rosenbaum is the executive director of the DC Access to Justice Commission. Its 2014 Raising the Bar Campaign represents an increase of more than $2M since the Campaign began four years ago, and the number of participating firms has more than doubled.
