“We all want to be part of something larger than ourselves. We offer our people the opportunity to engage with today’s challenges and fulfill that need to be part of something greater.” Hugh Verrier, Chairman


















“A distinctive feature of our Pro Bono Practice was our decision to rely on local leaders. We now have more than 100 Pro Bono Leaders across our 38 offices. They inspire and encourage, seek matters that play to our strengths, and demonstrate to our lawyers and staff that senior lawyers take pro bono seriously and that the Firm genuinely desires and honors our commitment.” Ian Forrester, QC
Partner, Brussels
