Announcing the Lerners 90th Anniversary Charitable Giveaway
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 invite you to share your story of an eligible charity or not-for-profit organization that has helped you in a meaningful way.
“It is without question, our privilege to be able to honour our clients, staff and friends of the firm by helping them give back to their communities,” said Graham Porter, the managing partner of Lerners LLP in London, Ontario. “We are proud to have been assisting and advocating for our clients for 90 years, and grateful for all the support we’ve received along the way. Giving back to the communities in which we live and work seemed the natural choice to recognize that we didn’t reach this milestone alone.”
The Giveaway is run by Lerners LLP, and runs until September 30, 2019. It is open to entrants who are legal residents of Ontario and are 18 years of age or older. In order to enter, applicants should visit www lerners90.ca and share an original, personal story of no more than 500 words via the submission portal. Submissions will be reviewed by an internal panel of judges, who will narrow the submissions down to the top 10 finalists. These finalists will be announced and posted to the website, and open to the public to vote on which of the 10 available donations of up to $30,000 will be made to the not-for-profit organizations and charities named in those stories.
