We’re amplifying the voices of our people and empowering them to fulfil their potential. We do this so we can build the best teams, help our clients succeed, and nurture a culture where everyone feels they belong.

Pro bono

Pursuing justice and social change

Around the world, many people and communities face barriers to justice. Through our pro bono work, we help children, asylum seekers, refugees and other under-served groups get the legal support, access to justice and fair treatment they need and deserve. 

We also give free advice to nonprofits, UN agencies, intergovernmental organizations and social enterprises. This allows them to focus on their missions and key objectives. And we support social and economic development, sound legal institutions and women's advancement in under-resourced regions.

I am tremendously proud to work at a firm where so many lawyers care about giving back by using their professional skills to help those who could not otherwise afford counsel.
