On February 6, 2018, UJA-Federation of New York honored Weil Securities Litigation practice Co-Head Joseph S. Allerhand at its annual Lawyers Division event. Mr. Allerhand was the recipient of the prestigious Judge Joseph M. Proskauer Award. The award, which has been bestowed upon prominent members of the legal community for more than half a century, is in recognition of an individual who has shown deep commitment to philanthropy, and whose leadership and service exemplifies the highest ideals of the law.
Mr. Allerhand was honored alongside Wachtell partner Emil A. Kleinhaus, recipient of the James H. Fogelson Emerging Leadership Award, and he becomes the third Weil partner to receive the Proskauer Award, joining Ira Millstein and Harvey Miller.
From the very beginning, Weil has been one of the leading supporters of UJA-Federation of New York and its broad mission to protect and empower those in need. We are proud of this long history and look forward to continuing to support the great work of UJA.
