White and Williams LLP Becomes Newest BBA Sponsor Firm

The Boston Bar Association announced today that White and Williams LLP is now a sponsor firm, supporting the BBA's mission to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large, and promote diversity and inclusion.

Founded in 1899, White and Williams LLP is a global-reaching, multi-practice law firm with over 240 lawyers in ten offices. The firm's Boston office - which opened in February 2009 - is located in the heart of Boston's financial district. White and Williams attorneys handle a wide array of complex litigation, regulatory matters and transactions. Clients include Fortune 500 and insurance companies, large corporations, and financial institutions, as well as mid-market and small businesses, institutions of higher education, and individuals.

"We are proud to sponsor the Boston Bar Association because of its outstanding service to the Boston legal community, dedication to continuing legal education, and unfailing commitment to pro bono and mentoring programs. These values align with the core beliefs of White and Williams LLP. As our firm continues to grow our Boston office, we look forward to partnering with the Boston Bar Association to further these aims." David Chaffin, Managing Partner, Boston Office of White and Williams LLP.

Throughout its long history, White and Williams has developed and expanded progressive initiatives including sustainable business practices, diversity and pro bono programs, and its highly-regarded Women's Initiative. White and Williams is proud to be among the major U.S. law firms that have elected a female managing partner.

The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
