On May 27, in response to an opinion piece from The New York Times’ Bret Stephens, 17 law firm leaders signed onto a letter denouncing antisemitism and all forms of hatred and violence against specific groups of people. That list now stands at 65 signatories as Big Law is again flexing its muscle when it comes to speaking out on social issues. 

Many of the firm names are familiar for those who track the Am Law 200. Jon Ballis of Kirkland & Ellis, Hugh Verrier of White & Case, Ira Coleman of McDermott Will & Emery and Richard Trobman of Latham & Watkins are among those who have now joined the call.
