Citizenship

Righting injustices. Strengthening society. Mentoring young people. We go beyond talking about good citizenship – we live it every day. 

Everyone at the firm is asked to volunteer at least 25 hours each year as part of normal work duties, and our lawyers devote more than 100,000 hours every year to pro bono matters. The firm’s Empowering Girls and Women Initiative challenges us to focus much of our Citizenship activity on empowering, advancing, and protecting the rights of girls and women. We invest our time, talents, and resources in the places where we live and work, and across our global community.
