Brown Rudnick Is Among Law Firm Leaders That Participated in Meeting with Vice President Biden to Discuss Pro Bono Legal Services for the Poor
Boston, MA, September 25, 2012 – On Wednesday, September 19, 2012, the board of directors of the Association of Pro Bono Counsel (“APBCo”) and senior management from board members’ firms, including Brown Rudnick LLP, met with Vice President Biden and White House staff in the Vice President’s Ceremonial Office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington D.C. The Vice President convened the meeting to focus on access to justice issues and the role that pro bono counsel at law firms play in the delivery of legal services to the poor. The meeting attendees discussed and celebrated collaborations between pro bono counsel and other stakeholders, including legal services organizations, bar associations and the judiciary. The participants committed to a long-term project to improve law firm efforts to expand access to justice, and the Vice President commended their commitment to increasing pro bono services.
Brown Rudnick is proud to be part of this initiative through the Firm’s Center for the Public Interest, the legal industry’s first-ever director-led entity dedicated to managing a firm’s pro bono, charitable giving and community service. The Center encourages each attorney and paralegal to provide pro bono legal representation to people or non-profit organizations that are without sufficient resources to afford an attorney or obtain access to justice. Brown Rudnick is also a signatory to the Pro Bono Institute Law Firm Challenge SM. The Firm’s current pro bono matters include representation of non-profit organizations and individuals involved with inner-city education, homeless shelters, artistic and theatrical groups, economic development for low to moderate income organizations, and indigent individuals and families. The value of this work annually exceeds $3 million.
