More than 50 lawyers backing Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign, including many from Big Law and top donors, have organized a new effort to boost fundraising for her campaign and bring attention to the candidate.

The lawyers’ group is aiming to raise at least $100,000 by the end of the month to help the California U.S. senator as she turns her attention to the early voting states in the presidential election, said Jon Henes, a Kirkland & Ellis partner who is helping to lead the group and is a member of Harris’ national finance committee. Laraine Rothenberg, a retired partner of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson who remains of counsel at the firm, is also helping to lead the effort.
