The Political Valence of Law Firm Political Contributions

Derek Muller of Excess of Democracy posted an article examining the political contributions of law firm employees and staff at 140 of the largest U.S. law firms. He finds, however, that the majority of the donations to these law firms are strongly oriented toward the Democratic Party.

This is his blog:

All told, I captured about $61 million in contributions to Democratic-affiliated groups compared to about $11 million for Republican-affiliated groups in 2017-2020, nearly a 6-to-1 ratio. . . .

Many companies had contributions that were less than 10%. Only a few had more than 25% and only three reached 50%. These figures can be misleading even among the deceptive. At White & Case, for instance, there was a single $500,000 contribution to the Trump Victory Fund, more than half of all Republican contributions in this four-year time period.
