Our biggest year in Pro Bono

At the end of 2021, we are sharing just a few of the stories from the pro bono work we do every day at Clayton Utz. We can't tell every story of how we have helped to change lives. The 12 tiles below represent a tiny fraction of our 1,319 pro bono files this year. None of these clients was eligible for Legal Aid's assistance. Without pro bono representation, they would have been on their own.

COVID-19 continues to upend lives, and as a consequence, 2021 was our busiest year ever in pro bono. Clayton Utz lawyers provided over 56,000 hours of pro bono work this year, with 90% of our lawyers and partners involved.

Clayton Utz is proud to have one of the strongest pro bono practices around, and proud that acting on a pro bono basis for low-income and vulnerable people is a real part of who we are as a firm.
