Arnold & Porter LLP Participates Enthusiastically in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
WASHINGTON, DC, August 21,2014 -- Scores of Arnold & Porter’s attorneys and executive staff in its U.S. and European offices have this week accepted the challenge of having a bucket of ice water tossed over their heads and/or making a contribution to raise awareness and support the fight against ALS.
The Challenge swept through the firm, starting in the NY office where all the office heads were called to duty, and then moving to DC, where Chairman Tom Milch challenged all of the firm’s practice heads. Within a few days, full practice groups and senior administrators committed individually or en masse to get doused with ice water, or pledge their support through pro bono efforts or associated donations. Friends, co-workers, firm clients, senior government officials and even a law school dean have all been invited by A&P to show their support and participate.
