Tales from our busiest-ever 12 months in pro bono
At the end of 2020, we wanted to share a few stories of 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 stories we are sharing with you, make up just 1% of the pro bono files that our firm conducted 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 upended so many lives, and the recession which it created made finding legal help more urgent for many more people. As a consequence, 2020 was our busiest year ever in pro bono. Clayton Utz lawyers provided over 56,000 hours of pro bono work in 2020, up 28% on the year before.
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. In November 2020 we were named in London as the Who's Who Legal Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year, for the second consecutive year.
