40 AT 50 Fourteen law firms — out of 109 that qualified — were honored by judges on D.C.’s federal bench for their pro bono work. A celebratory reception, the 40 at 50: Judicial Pro Bono Recognition Breakfast, was hosted April 25 at the E. Barrett Prettyman U.S. Courthouse by Chief Judge Douglas Ginsburg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Chief Judge Thomas Hogan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Each firm met the benchmark of having at least 40 percent of their attorneys individually work 50 or more hours of pro bono in 2005. Only D.C. firms with at least 26 attorneys were eligible. The 14 firms honored were Arnold & Porter; Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton; Covington & Burling; Crowell & Moring; DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary; Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson; Goodwin Procter; Heller Ehrman; Hogan & Hartson; Jenner & Block; Kilpatrick Stockton; Shearman & Sterling; Steptoe & Johnson; and WilmerHale.
FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF TRIAL LAWYERS Mark Wegener, vice-chair at Howrey, was elected a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. Founded in 1950, the college is made up of members of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship is extended by invitation to trial lawyers who, in the college’s eyes, have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years’ trial experience before they can be considered. � Nathan Carlile
