In November 2008, two hundred volunteers, clients, and supporters gathered at Pfizer Conference Center in New York City to help Lawyers Alliance honor 2008 Cornerstone Awardees. This impressive group of two law firms, one accounting firm, and nine individual attorneys showcased the outstanding pro bono legal work so essential to nonprofit organizations that are improving New York neighborhoods.
Among the individuals honored was Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP partner Warren T. Buhle. His longstanding pro bono commitment as volunteer general counsel to Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America assists this organization promote research to find new treatments and a cure for the rare genetic skin disease.
Mr. Buhle is a member of the firm's corporate department, specializing in representing lenders and borrowers in a wide variety of financial transactions.
