Earlier this month, Gibson Dunn was named by Law360 as one of the Pro Bono Firms of the Year for 2014. Law360‘s Pro Bono Firms of the Year profiles the firms that had the biggest wins for clients in pro bono matters over the course of the year. Winning firms must also show a strong firmwide commitment to pro bono work.
As the publication noted, "Gibson Dunn attorneys dedicated a substantial portion of their workload over the past year to a slew of advocacy-based litigation, tackling cases centering on human trafficking, government oversight and religious freedom issues, and securing the firm’s status as one of Law360‘s top shops for pro bono work. Buttressing the firm’s third consecutive appearance among Law360‘s pro bono elite were the 129,575 pro bono hours logged among its roughly 971 U.S.-based attorneys, which amounted to an average of 133 hours per attorney. That rate places many of Gibson Dunn’s lawyers well ahead of the 60-hour minimum enshrined in the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge, to which the firm is a signatory."
The firm is very proud of its accomplishments over this last year. To review the full article: Click Here
