Thousands of law firms, including several directly affiliated with President Donald Trump, received hundreds of thousands of dollars, or millions in some cases, from the federal government’s coronavirus loan program, newly released data show.

Overall, the average Paycheck Protection Program loan was $107,000, and the Small Business Administration, which administered the program, said the effort helped to support more than 51 million jobs across an array of industries.

At least 45 firms in the Am Law 200—among the highest-grossing firms in the country—reported obtaining PPP loans, ALM reported Monday. More than 1,500 law firms across the country obtained more than $1 million in relief, according to a searchable database designed by The Washington Post.
