This year, Lerners LLP proudly celebrates its 90th anniversary as a law firm. From our humble beginnings as a one man practice in London, to becoming one of Southwestern Ontario’s largest firms, we recognize that our clients, staff and the legal and broader community have been integral in helping build our success. Instead of throwing a big gala or party for our anniversary, we thought we would honour those who have helped us by helping them give back to their communities.
In addition to the more than 100 charities and organizations that we continue to support, the Lerners LLP 90th Anniversary Charitable Giveaway (the “Giveaway”) will see a total of $90,000 donated in honour of our 90 years as a law firm to various charities and not-for-profit organizations which have had an impact on our clients, staff or friends. We invited our staff, lawyers, clients and the general public to share their stories describing how an eligible charity or not-for-profit organization had helped them in a meaningful way.
We received more than 250 submissions from across Ontario detailing how charitable organizations, supporting a variety of causes, had made a real difference in the lives of individuals, family and institutions. Our panel of judges have narrowed down the entries based on established criteria and selected the Top 10 Finalists.
The Giveaway is run by Lerners LLP, and voting closes September 30, 2019. For additional details and full contest rules and regulations, please visit www.lerners90.ca.
Lerners LLP has grown to become one of Southwestern Ontario’s largest firms with offices in London, Toronto, Strathroy and Owen Sound. Ours is a history of 90 years of successful client service and representation and today we are more than 120 exceptionally skilled lawyers with abundant experience.
