Weil represented The Institute for American Police Reform (IAPR) in its formation, including its structuring for future growth and application for nonprofit status. IAPR believes that policing is essential, and so is policing reform. IAPR is a non-partisan organization providing guidance on policing laws and policies, police accountability and partnerships in community, leadership development, and police standards and training development. IAPR’s CEO, Nicholas Sensley, and a number of its board members are current or former police chiefs of color. As such, they are uniquely qualified to understand and heal the divide between police officers and communities of color. IAPR’s general counsel is Weil retired partner Steven Reiss, who led Weil’s Appeals and Strategic Counseling and Pro Bono practices before his retirement; he has received numerous awards for his commitment to pro bono service.
The team that represents IAPR was led by Corporate partner Harvey Eisenberg (who is also a member of IAPR’s board of advisors), along with Corporate associate Jeff Lord, Banking & Finance associate Kyle Brumm, and Tax associates Hector Beason and Joshua Graybill.
