The U.S. Conference of Mayors has tapped Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr to help put together a list of reforms and recommendations aimed at building trust between police departments and their communities while rooting out racist policing practices.

Wilmer’s work for the conference is one of the most prominent examples of a big firm seeking to take a more active role in addressing racial justice issues in the wake of the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others.
