Strong contribution by Greenberg Traurig’s Atlanta office earns another grand prize

ATLANTA – June 4, 2024 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s Atlanta office has been recognized again for winning the Bar President’s Award grand prize as part of the state’s annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy. In its 13th year, the 2024 campaign run by Feeding Georgia raised $787,883 and included 141 firms and organizations representing 10,008 members of Georgia’s legal community over a two-week period.

Greenberg Traurig raised $76,855, securing the Bar President’s Award for the 5th time. The firm’s donations contributed to the overall amount, which will provide 3.15 million meals for the state's regional food banks, serving Georgia's children, seniors, and families in need.

“As a community-centered firm, Greenberg Traurig consistently embraces a spirit of giving. I’m proud that members of our firm feel compelled to answer the call to provide for those in need, and Feeding Georgia makes sure that every dollar raised is put to good use,” said Theodore I. Blum, co-managing shareholder of the firm’s Atlanta office and chair of the Atlanta Corporate Practice. “Working in competition with our peers is a great way to give back to a worthy cause and we have fun with the process.”

The winners will be recognized at the State Bar of Georgia annual meeting next month, as well as at an awards event in Atlanta. The competition is co-sponsored by the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division, State of Georgia Office of the Attorney General, and Feeding Georgia, the umbrella organization for seven regional food banks throughout the state.
