Corporate Social Responsibility | Diversity & Inclusion | Sustainability
One of the major benefits of being a global law firm is having the bandwidth and resources to help people through our work in lots of places and on large-scale projects. With lawyers in 46 countries and a long history of working for multinational companies, we’ve built our business on collaborations that strategically serve our clients’ interests.
We bring this same collegiality and efficiency to our pro bono projects. Each year we donate our time to causes such as helping the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria secure the licensing rights to post a Paul McCartney fundraising concert on YouTube and advising the International Senior Lawyers Project on oil exploration and production issues in Sierra Leone.
To expand our sphere of influence, we’ve led the way in teaming with some of the largest corporations in the world, including Abbott, Google, Intel, JP Morgan Chase, Microsoft and Starbucks.
In a recent pro bono case, we teamed with more than 40 in-house lawyers at Accenture, Caterpillar and Merck to help the Public Interest Law Institute draft model legislation to protect Nepalese women working in “cabin and dance restaurants” from socio-economic and sexual exploitation. For more information about our pro bono teaming projects, read our brochure.
In all of our pro bono efforts, we are strategic about the projects we choose. We use our time and resources to make a meaningful impact on complex legal and social issues that require the sophistication and experience of a global law firm.
