Corporate citizenship

What strikes both clients and colleagues about us is our community; something that’s important to us in every sense of the word. After all, we’re a tight-knit network but we also look beyond ourselves to serve our wider society.

First-class expertise freely shared

As a global firm, we feel that it’s our duty to encourage inclusion and to show compassion to those who need it most. We provide support to the most excluded parts of society through our pro bono work. That takes all kinds of forms across our offices, from advising charities to helping refugees and victims of human trafficking. Around the world, our lawyers spend more than 115,000 hours a year on pro bono work.

We’ve earned awards for our pro bono work from D.C. Appleseed, D.C. Volunteer Lawyers Project, Pro Bono Partnership, and Tahirih Justice Center, Immigration Equality, among others.

For over a decade straight, more than 40% of our Washington, D.C. lawyers have performed 50+ hours of pro bono work, qualifying us for the D.C. Circuit Judicial Conference"40 at 50" pro bono award.

We were honored by The American Lawyer with its Lifetime Achievement Award for Citizenship for our ongoing and extensive pro bono work in Liberia.

We’ve been named to The National Law Journal's Pro Bono Hot List three times.

Citizens of our wider community

Just as we’re a community of our own, we recognize that we have a vital part to play in the world around us. That’s why our positive network of support doesn’t stop at our office doors. Through our global Citizenship program, we give back to our society, we engage future generations, and we protect our planet. We do that through matched giving, through community investment, and through our commitment to sustainability.  

In 2017, we spent roughly 247,000 hours defending and upholding the rule of law, compassion, equality, and togetherness. Read our 2017 Citizenship Report to see the highlights.
