Cooley Wins ‘Best of Reston' Award for Commitment to Community Service

Reston, Va. – January 17, 2014 – Cooley LLP announced today that it has received the ‘Best of Reston' award in the Corporate Business Category for its 'culture of changing lives.' The annual awards, delivered by Cornerstones and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, highlight individuals, organizations and businesses for outstanding community service in and around Reston.

Cooley was specifically recognized for providing its employees with every chance to give back, including allowing paid leave time for volunteer work, as well as matching donations by its employees. Firm wide last year, Cooley contributed more than $1 million to nonprofits around the United States. In addition, through its pro bono practice some 466 Cooley attorneys contributed more than 33,000 hours on more than 687 different pro bono projects last year, as noted in an article in the Reston Patch.

"We're truly honored to have received such a meaningful award," said Frank Pietrantonio, partner-in-charge of Cooley's Reston office. "Giving back to our communities is one of the firm's stated values and is engrained in our firm wide culture. It is a big part of what makes Cooley such a unique place to work."

The Best of Reston winners will be honored at an annual event, which will be held Thursday, April 10, at the Hyatt Regency Reston. The event seeks to raise money for Cornerstones to purchase affordable housing to help individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness.
