Providing Support to Our Veterans
Studies have shown that physical activity can be beneficial in dealing with common mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression, which often affect combat veterans. Since May 2011, our lawyers from multiple U.S. offices have advised veterans' nonprofit Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB) on a plethora of issues, most recently including corporate partnership and sponsorship agreements with leading Fortune 500 companies, risk management, liability waivers, membership issues, corporate governance, and privacy-related issues.
In addition, for the third year in a row, we sponsored a team of lawyers and staff to run in the American Odyssey Relay from Gettysburg, Pa., to Washington, D.C. in support of Team RWB. Team RWB was also our New York office's Touch charity partner for 2013. Throughout the year, the office collaborated with Team RWB to raise funds to support its vital mission.
