Arnold & Porter Tops American Lawyer's 2015 Pro Bono Report Internationally, Ranks Second in US
WASHINGTON, DC, July 7, 2015 -- For the second year in a row, Arnold & Porter LLP led The American Lawyer's annual pro bono ranking of large law firms internationally and ranked second amongst US firms.
In its June issue, The American Lawyer's 2015 Pro Bono Report particularly cited Arnold & Porter lawyers in both the UK and US for spending more than 480 hours "researching the legal issues surrounding HIV self-testing kits and coordinating advice from other countries in the region for the Southern African AIDS Trust." In the US, the firm was recognized, among other things, for its prodigious work in Cunningham v. Federal Bureau of Prisons, a class action on behalf of mentally ill Supermax prisoners, and for starting a new project defending military and civilian victims of sexual abuse by US service personnel.
Earlier this year, Arnold & Porter led the Thomson Reuters Foundation's latest TrustLaw Index of Pro Bono Service Rankings in England and Wales and was named to the National Law Journal's "Pro Bono Hot List".
