Through our pro bono work, we engage teams of problem-solvers on the most compelling social justice challenges around the globe where our teams, both from inside our Firm and with our external partners, can make an impact.
Our Pro Bono practice engages our professionals in several types of activities to achieve our mission.
- We work to create and foster an environment that encourages and supports attorneys to provide legal service to disadvantaged and underserved in our communities.
- We collaborate with in-house counsel to provide pro bono
- We support and create opportunities for Firm employees to dedicate time and energy to a public service organization or cause through volunteerism and we maintain a civic presence by providing leadership to the most respected civic organizations in our community.
- We are committed to providing financial sponsorship to public interest practitioners through fellowships and to offering financial support to help meet the needs of our communities by developing charitable giving strategies.
All this work supports our central focus on pro bono legal services to the underserved and disadvantaged, a tradition we are passionate about and we always working to enhance and grow.
