Few firms can match the breadth and depth of skill provided by our leading corporate and litigation practices.

From helping Thurgood Marshall prepare and argue Brown v. Board of Education, winning landmark victories in civil rights cases like defending Edith Windsor in United States v. Windsor before the lower courts and the United States Supreme Court ultimately overturning portions of the Defense of Marriage Act and to handling death row cases, our lawyers’ pro bono work has contributed to significant outcomes in cases vital both to individuals and to our society as a whole.
