Pro Bono Report – 2020-21
Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner is committed to making a real and lasting difference in the communities where we work; it’s one of our firm’s core values. We encourage all of our lawyers and legal staff to undertake pro bono work, whether in the traditional format of assisting individual clients or through innovative projects and initiatives. The firm has just released an 18-month report which is a sampling of the types of pro bono projects the firm handled in 2020 and the first half of 2021. This work took place during a particularly volatile time in the U.S. and globally, with communities worldwide disrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and historic Black Lives Matter movement, and the repercussions of both.
