Arnold & Porter Tops 2015 List of Law Firm Pro Bono Programs in England and Wales
LONDON, June 12, 2015 -- Arnold & Porter LLP contributed the most pro bono hours on a per attorney basis in England and Wales last year, according to an annual survey of law firms there conducted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
The Foundation’s 2015 TrustLaw Index of Pro Bono is designed to again identify and assess trends in pro bono around the world. The latest survey polled law firms both within and outside TrustLaw, the global service connecting lawyers willing to offer free legal assistance to non-profits and social enterprises. Last year Arnold & Porter was honored with the TrustLaw Collaboration Award for the pro bono work its London office performed for the Southern African AIDS Trust (SAT) on HIV self testing.
