From its founding our firm has given a high priority to providing services without charge to support educational, humanitarian and other public interest and charitable organizations and activities. Among the issues our work has addressed are: defending voting rights in the U.S.; U. S. justice system reform; international humanitarian law; post conflict transitional justice; strict limitations upon international arms sales; prevention of war crimes; assistance to victims of domestic violence; combatting forced labor and child labor; counteracting transnational repression of emigres; promoting the rights of non-citizens; international economic development in low-income countries; and designing peace processes to end international armed conflict.
Some of the organizations our attorneys, analysists and interns have cooperated with on these issues in recent years include: The Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law; Catholic Charities Legal Network; The Yemen Peace Project; Win Without War; House of Ruth; Crisis Action; and The State Fragility Initiative.
We also encourage and support individual and collective research and writing for scholarly publications and web sites as well as participation in professional seminars and public events.
Additionally, to increase the impact of our employees’ personal charitable donations, the firm matches employees’ donations to a wide array of 501(c)(3) organizations.
