Jenner & Block was recently selected by Law360 for inclusion in its list of 2015 “Pro Bono All Stars,” defined by the publication asa “select group of law firms” who have demonstrated “exceptionally stalwart commitment to pro bono work year after year.”
The article naming the 17 firms spotlighted Jenner & Block and included numerous quotes from Managing Partner Terrence J. Truax, who discussed how the firm demonstrates its commitment to pro bono. “We never waiver in our willingness to commit the full resources of the firm to our pro bono clients,” Mr. Truax toldLaw360. “We make no distinction between pro bono and paying clients, but strive to achieve the same exceptional results that we are known for, for all of our clients, regardless of ability to pay.”
Mr. Truax also noted that, in addition to undertaking large signature matters, the firm encourages its lawyers to seek out pro bono cases and issues that are of particular importance and interest to them. “As a result, our lawyers are passionate about the pro bono work they do,” he stated.
Jenner & Block has been named a Law360 “Pro Bono Firm of the Year” for five consecutive years, since the series began in 2010. The firm was also recently recognized by The American Lawyer, in its 2015 rankings, as the No. 1 law firm in the United States for pro bono service, marking the sixth time in eight years and the seventh time overall that the firm has achieved that standing since the AmLaw survey began in 1990.
