Article Features Firm’s Efforts to Build Pro Bono Program in London

To discover the keys to successfully launching a pro bono program in a new office, The Global Legal Post turned to Jenner & Block Partner Andrew W. Vail, co-chair of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee who is based in Chicago, and Partner Christian Tuddenham and Associate Victoria C. Fitzpatrick, both members of the Pro Bono Committee and lawyers at the firm’s London office.  Titled “Pro bono: Leading the Way,” the article notes that Jenner & Block is regularly named the top pro bono firm in the United States.  When the firm opened its London office in 2015, it faced the challenge of how to build a new program “from scratch.”  Ultimately, the article observes that “Jenner & Block’s London office is finding that consistent and persistent effort is the key to integrating pro bono into the fabric of daily practice.   At the end of the day, the collective will to create a meaningful program is perhaps most critical, and especially so when it is supported by the ethos and culture.”
