Davis+Gilbert LLP announces November 3, 2020 (Election Day) as a paid firm holiday.
In a firm-wide email (on August 28, 2020), firm chairman Ronald Urbach encouraged all employees of the firm to take time to vote:
“Remember people matter, and people can make a difference. Listen to the words of a great American Representative John Lewis who said – ‘Ours is not the struggle of the one day, one week or one year. Ours is not the struggle of one judicial appointment or presidential term. Ours is the struggle of a lifetime, or maybe even many lifetimes, and each one of us in every generation must do our part.’
Each of us as responsible members of a democratic society has a key role that gives us the power to effect change – the right to vote. We as a firm believe that we should do all that we can to encourage you to exercise your right and responsibility. As such, we are providing Tuesday, November 3rd as a paid firm holiday. Please vote this coming Election Day. Remember, your vote makes a difference.”
