Foley & Lardner LLP

777 E. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee

Milwaukee-based Foley & Lardner LLP has a strong commitment to leading by example. In 2015, Foley employees raised more than $600,000 for United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County, the United Performing Arts Fund and Hunger Task Force.

Additionally, 87 percent of the firm’s attorneys participated in various pro bono projects throughout the firm and provided hours of volunteer service worth an estimated $18.8 million.

In 2012, Foley established a one-of-a-kind partnership with the Wisconsin Conservatory of Lifelong Learning, a K-12 Milwaukee public school with about 700 students. Approximately 100 to 150 Foley employees provide financial support and volunteer assistance to the WCLL students year-round. In 2015, the firm donated more than $27,000.

The support is crucial for students to receive much-needed school supplies, backpacks and even winter coats, hats and gloves.

Foley also supports enrichment activities like trips to the Milwaukee Ballet, First Stage and Milwaukee Repertory Theater.

By focusing its commitment on a school that serves students throughout their academic careers, Foley is able to make a difference in the lives of these students.
