At Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP, the commitment to providing pro bono services has been a tradition since its founding in 1901 and remains a core value today. 

The pro bono projects tackled by the firm often involve cutting edge legal issues resulting in the creation of new policies and laws, and changes to individual lives. Whether it’s maintaining a neighborhood office solely dedicated to pro bono work, maintaining full-time pro bono fellowships for lawyers interested in seeking positions in public service, or providing free legal services to legal aid clients or immigrants seeking asylum from persecution, the firm has proven its dedication to pro bono service and its standing as one of the best firms doing pro bono work.

Between 1993 and 2021, Hunton Andrews Kurth, a signatory member of the Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge©,  met or exceeded the goal of providing more than 3 percent of its billable time to pro bono services. Hunton Andrews Kurth was recognized in 2009 with the Pro Bono Institute Pickering Award for its extraordinary record of lawyer participation in pro bono services. In 1999, the firm was awarded the American Bar Association Pro Bono Publico Award for its noteworthy contributions in extending legal service to the poor and disadvantaged through the firm’s neighborhood pro bono office model.

Between 2009 and 2021, 100 percent of Hunton Andrews Kurth’s full-time US lawyers participated in pro bono projects. Annually, the firm’s lawyers across its domestic and international offices donated more than 50,000 hours of service to low-income and charitable clients.
