Howrey digs deep for tsunami relief fund

Washington DC-based Howrey Simon Arnold & White has pledged to donate $1m to the Indian Ocean tsunami relief efforts and is urging other firms to make similar contributions.

The firm’s managing partner and chief executive officer Robert Ruyak said: “Our hope is that other major law firms will consider joining us at this level in attempting to meet this extraordinary need.”

In an e-mail to partners and staff Ryak said: I know that many of you have already donated generously to the relief efforts and that you join me in this additional commitment.”
