Wilkinson Barker Knauer LLP (WBK) proudly announces the launch of its social responsibility program, WBK Forward. As a law firm long committed to community, inclusion, and service, WBK is eager to connect more deeply — and give back in new and expanded ways — to the communities we serve.
Over four decades, WBK lawyers and staff have devoted time and energy to volunteerism, civic and community leadership, charitable giving, pro bono work, mentoring, service on nonprofit boards, and more. WBK Forward will bring many of these efforts together under a single program, substantially increasing our ability to positively impact our communities and facilitating opportunities for WBK employees to engage in more ways.
“Our communities look to us to be leaders in these areas,” said Managing Partner Bryan Tramont. “Even more importantly, we know our lawyers and staff seek opportunities to make a difference in personally meaningful ways. Our firm pillars emphasize teamwork, unique contributions, and a supportive culture, and WBK Forward fits squarely within these values. I’m so proud of the many ways individuals at WBK already contribute. This new program reflects and solidifies who we already are, and will allow us to leverage the diverse backgrounds and passions of our lawyers and staff for the greater benefit of the DC and Denver communities.”
WBK Forward will be led by WBK’s recently named Director of Social Responsibility, long-time partner Natalie Roisman. Natalie is a leader in the Federal Communications Bar Association, the Women’s Bar Association of DC, and numerous civic and nonprofit organizations.
“It’s humbling and exciting to be charged with the responsibility of taking the firm to the next level in these important areas,” said Natalie. “My goal is to make it easier for everyone associated with WBK to give back in ways that engage them personally and make our world better.”
WBK welcomes the opportunity to partner on pro bono, community service, or charitable endeavors with nonprofit organizations, bar associations, clients, firm alumni, and friends of the firm.
