Margaret D. Farrell
Hinckley Allen is proud to have advised Charles Widger, founder and executive chairman of Brinker Capital, in connection with his $25 million leadership gift to his alma mater, Villanova University’s School of Law. In recognition of the largest donation ever to the Law School and the second largest in the University’s history, the Law School will be named the “Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law.”
Peggy Farrell led the team of Hinckley Allen attorneys involved in the transaction. This investment will enhance academic innovation at the Law School through new programs to be named in Widger’s honor, including an Endowed Scholars Program, Endowed University Professorship and Dean’s Innovation Fund. It will continue to support Villanova Law’s innovative curriculum that combines business with professional development and real-world learning.
