The American Lawyer has again placed Robins Kaplan LLP in the top 10 percent of the Am Law 200 for pro bono work. The 2015 Pro Bono Report ranks the nation’s 200 highest-grossing firms by their U.S. pro bono commitment. Scores are calculated by determining the average number of pro bono hours per lawyer and the percentage of lawyers who performed more than 20 hours of pro bono work during the previous calendar year.
"Equal access to justice is a core value at Robins Kaplan," said Patrick Arenz, attorney and Chairman of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee. "We pride ourselves on our longstanding commitment to serving everyone in our society, including those who cannot afford legal representation. We're pleased that the American Lawyer recognized our pro bono work and ranked Robins Kaplan number 15 in the Am Law 200 pro bono survey."
The firm has consistently ranked in the top 10 percent of the Am Law 200 for pro bono work. Since 2009, more than six percent of the firm's total billable hours have been contributed to pro bono legal services.
