The Financial Times named Gibson Dunn a standout firm at the European Innovative Lawyer Awards 2019. The firm was recognised in the Innovation in the Rule of Law and Access to Justice category for London associate Ryan Whelan’s work leading the legal and political campaign in the UK against “upskirting.” The awards were presented on September 12, 2019.
Gibson Dunn actively encourages robust participation in pro bono matters. We believe that lawyers have a special ability and duty to help ensure meaningful access to the justice system for everyone. We are dedicated to the idea that the most vulnerable in our society receive a fair opportunity to receive legal representation in times of need. Whether protecting constitutional rights, working on behalf of the LGBTQ community, spearheading anti-human trafficking efforts, battling slumlords, fighting on behalf of domestic violence victims, advocating on behalf of veterans, or engaging in extensive efforts on behalf of the immigrant community, our lawyers have provided access to justice for those who could not otherwise afford it. The uniting force behind our pro bono work has been – and continues to be – a shared commitment to protecting the Constitution, upholding the rule of law, and providing access to justice for all.
