The fund raised for Tom ap Rhys Pryce, the Linklaters associate murdered in a street robbery in January, has raised more than £750,000.
The fund, set up to honour ap Rhys Pryce's memory, will be used to pay for educational opportunities for disadvantaged young people.
In a statement, Linklaters said: "Our thoughts are with Tom's family and with his fiancée, Adele [Eastman]."
Donnel Carty, 19, and Delano Brown, 18, were convicted for ap Rhys Pryce's murder last Tuesday (28 November). Both were given life sentences, with Carty told he would serve a minimum of 21 years and Brown a minimum of 17 years.
Ap Rhys Pryce was mugged as he made his way home from Kensal Green tube station, in North West London. When the 31-year-old refused to hand over his mobile phone and Oyster card, he was stabbed and bled to death near the home he shared with Eastman, an employment associate at Farrer & Co.
