Pro Bono Firm Of 2016: Covington & Burling

September 20, 2016, Law360

Law360 named Covington as a “Pro Bono Firm of 2016.” According to Alan Pemberton, the firm’s pro bono program is loosely structured to allow attorneys to take on cases they feel strongly about. Legal services are often too expensive for the people who need them most, he adds, so the firm takes addressing pro bono work seriously. “We view it as a moral and professional obligation as a result of the privileged position we are allowed to occupy in society as our status as lawyers. From those to whom much is given, much is expected.”

Law360 highlighted a number of the firm’s pro bono matters and also quoted Stanley Young, Dennis Auerbach, Henry Liu, and Austin Hampton, discussing their cases.
