Last month, the Boston office of international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP participated in the 2015 Best Buddies Hyannis Port Challenge. The Boston office team included attorneys Mark A. Berthiaume, Roman Fayerberg, and Michael A. Cohen. Members of the team biked 20, 50, or 100 miles from Boston to Hyannis Port, raising over $140,000 in support of Best Buddies and its effort to assist those in the Greater Boston community with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In all, over the last nine years, the firm’s Boston office has raised over $1,015,000 for Best Buddies.
