Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year: Gibson Dunn & Crutcher

The 2018 Who’s Who Legal Pro Bono Award is presented to Gibson Dunn & Crutcher in recognition of the superb work that the firm has undertaken, particularly for the help it has given to disenfranchised and refugee communities within the United States and those seeking citizenship from abroad. The firm’s international scope; a committed team with real leadership; and its lawyers’ belief in making a difference to the lives of those who cannot afford legal representation and in upholding the rule of law, all played an important part in the decision to crown Gibson Dunn our Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year.

The firm has worked with numerous legal aid and non-profit organisations across the globe. Some of the feedback from those groups we spoke to is below:

Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) helps unaccompanied children who have arrived in the US without parents and who need attorneys to help them through the deportation process: “Gibson Dunn has been a phenomenal partner to KIND, helping in over 140 cases in multiple cities over many years”.

Lawyers Without Borders works with Gibson Dunn on advocacy training on the rule of law in Africa: “Gibson Dunn is our go-to law firm to help us create our mock case files.”

The International Refugee Assistance Project has sought assistance from Gibson Dunn in many deportation cases: “Gibson Dunn is one of our most prolific partners when it comes to pro bono work. They have been really great and have taken on a lot of cases [to] make sure people’s rights were respected.”

Gibson Dunn stood out to our assessment panel for its strong and committed team and its numerous successful projects over the past year. Furthermore, the firm-wide structure in place suggests that its lawyers will continue to be involved in many important and pressing issues in the years to come.
