The American Lawyer Names the Firm its “Pro Bono Champion”
The American Lawyer named the firm its “Pro Bono Champion,” a new award as part of the publication’s newly revamped set of recognitions. The award is “meant to honor the exceptional work that goes on across the entire legal services delivery spectrum and the increasing interconnectedness among members of that community,” according to The American Lawyer. This recognition is in addition to the firm’s number one US pro bono ranking, which The American Lawyer announced in June. Award recipients receive formal recognition at a gala in New York on December 5.

Further, Jenner & Block is tied for 10th place in “breadth of commitment,” a chart that ranks firms by the percentage of US-based lawyers who performed more than 20 hours of work in 2015: 77 percent of Jenner & Block lawyers did so. In total, firm lawyers devoted 54,510 hours to pro bono work in 2015. AmLaw has ranked the firm #1 in pro bono seven times, most recently in 2015.
