BWMK and Partner Elizabeth Kaveny Host Reception for the Leaders and Key Benefactors of the Illinois Bar Foundation
Elizabeth A. Kaveny, name partner in noted Chicago plaintiffs’ law firm Burke Wise Morrissey Kaveny (BWMK), represented the firm as it sponsored a reception at the BWMK offices to welcome David M. Anderson, new Executive Director of the Illinois Bar Foundation. The April 18, 2013 reception also recognized the members of the IBF’s Lincoln Legacy Society, an honorary organization of IBF friends and benefactors whose charitable bequests and other planned gifts support the organization’s dual missions of ensuring that those of limited means have adequate access to the justice system, and assisting lawyers who are no longer self-supporting due to their incapacity.
Ms. Kaveny currently serves as the IBF’s Third Vice President and is a member of its Board of Directors. IBF President Judge Debra Walker was among the attendees, and both she and Ms. Kaveny made brief remarks. In hosting the reception, Burke Wise Morrissey Kaveny demonstrated the firm’s appreciation for the Lincoln Legacy Society members whose thoughtful gifts and gift intentions are instrumental in carrying out the IBF’s ongoing objectives.
