Congratulations to Sutherland. The firm’s band, “Sutherland Comfort,” won the 2010 Battle of the Law Firm Bands in D.C. on Thursday night. Sutherland Comfort defeated a host of worthy challengers — including “Dangerous Communication Device,” the Williams & Connolly band that won the contest in the past two years.
And congratulations to the organizers of the event, which broke records in terms of both attendance and fundraising. From the BLT:
According to Walter Lohmann, a Kirkland & Ellis partner and one of the Banding Together organizers, this year’s contest raised $131,251, a new record for the event. Another record was the amount donated by sponsors. This year, sponsors contributed over $60,000. The rest of the money raised came from ticket sales and “votes”…. And finally, this year’s audience of 1,200 marked the largest number of attendees in its history.
Unlike last year, Above the Law was unable to send a correspondent down to D.C. to cover the festivities. But you can check out the BLT’s complete account via the link below.
