The National Law Journal featured Morrison & Foerster among 10 law firms on its 2012 Pro Bono Hotlist, which recognizes exemplary commitments to access to justice.
Partner Drew Woodmansee was profiled for his advocacy and litigation work that led to the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell on September 30, 2011. Beginning in 2009, a Morrison & Foerster pro bono team has represented four gay servicemembers who served their country with distinction but were dismissed, or were poised to be dismissed, under Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
The list, published January 2, highlighted “10 firms that haven't forgotten their professional obligations even - especially - during hard times. Often, at considerable expense or risk to themselves," National Law Journal editor Michael Moline wrote.
