Morrison & Foerster is a pro bono leader. The firm galvanized the 1991 gathering of law firm leaders that led to the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge®, the bedrock of pro bono today. One of the first law firms to create a full-time pro bono counsel position, MoFo dedicates extraordinary resources to help attorneys contribute their best through pro bono work.
Lawyers in Morrison & Foerster offices worldwide live out this proud pro bono tradition every day. Our work runs the gamut, from class action representation that benefits thousands to individual advocacy for people who otherwise would be shut out from access to justice. We staff legal service clinics and counsel hundreds of nonprofit organizations on legal needs from corporate formation to patent claims.
In all these matters, we are guided by the principle of according equal dignity and applying equal rigor to our pro bono endeavors. We invite you to meet a few of our pro bono clients by viewing the video below and to learn more about pro bono at MoFo throughout these pages.
