We encourage all of our lawyers to apply their talent and passion to causes they care about. Many of our lawyers consider pro bono service an essential and profoundly rewarding part of their work at Davis Polk.
We offer our lawyers exceptional opportunities to provide legal services to those who cannot otherwise obtain legal representation. Led by the firm’s Chief Pro Bono Counsel, we have litigation lawyers dedicated exclusively to pro bono racial justice initiatives and humanitarian immigration matters, respectively, and a corporate and transactional team that is one of the largest of its kind among peer firms. Our pro bono work includes matters related to asylum, immigration, domestic violence and family law, civil and human rights, veterans’ assistance, nonprofits, small businesses and LGBTQ+ equality.
