Covington Named Law360 ‘Pro Bono Firm of 2010’

November 29, 2010

WASHINGTON, DC, November 29, 2010 — Covington & Burling LLP has been named one of the “Pro Bono Firms of 2010” by Law360 in recognition of the firm’s commitment to “taking on challenging legal work to serve the public good.” In the November 24 profile, Law360 highlights Covington’s wins in pro bono cases in the past year, including the successful representation of a domestic abuse victim in the U.S. Supreme Court. Other pro bono cases noted by Law360 include the firm’s “work on capital defense, discrimination and civil rights matters for underprivileged clients in venues ranging from the nation’s highest court to remote prison facilities.”

Covington has had a strong commitment to public service since its founding in 1919. The firm encourages all of its lawyers to participate in pro bono work, and devotes significant resources to finding pro bono projects that reflect the diverse interests of its lawyers. The American Lawyer has ranked Covington at or near the top of its annual pro bono survey for the past 18 years.

Law360 invited nominations from more than 400 U.S. firms for its inaugural Pro Bono Firms of the Year series. The firms with the biggest wins in pro bono cases that also displayed a major commitment to pro bono work in 2010 were selected to be profiled in this series.
