Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe of counsel Adrienne Weil and her pet project, the California Schools Cash Reserve Program, have grown up together. Weil, the co-chairwoman of the firm’s school finance and general obligation bonds group, began working on the program in 1987, when she was a junior associate and it was in its embryonic stage. At its inception, the cash reserve program served six school districts around the state, which pooled together to borrow $9.6 million. More than a decade later, in July of this year, Weil applied the finishing touches to a 372-district, $1.025 billion pooled financing. Weil works a 65 percent schedule at Orrick and has two young daughters. The co-chairman of her practice group, John Hartenstein, lauds her dedication to the school finance project, and points out that it is but one of several she works on. “This one really is her baby, though,” he concedes. Weil says that her involvement with her eldest daughter’s school has shown her “how critical it is for all schools to have access to every source of funding they can get. “I see the good and positive that comes to these schools from efficient products,” Weil notes. “It helps libraries buy more books. All children benefit enormously from having this product.”
