During the last eight fiscal years, 100 percent of Hunton & Williams LLP full-time US lawyers participated in pro bono projects. At the end of the firm’s fiscal year on March 31, the firm had donated more than 40,000 pro bono hours to underserved communities. This represents more than 3 percent of the firm’s gross billable hours and commemorates 22 continuous years of meeting or exceeding the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge of donating at least 3 percent of the firm’s annual billable hours to pro bono service.

Hunton & Williams is proud of its community service and leadership among law firms in the United States, where the firm’s tradition of pro bono service is well recognized. The firm maintains two neighborhood offices — in Richmond and Charlottesville, Virginia — solely dedicated to pro bono services for low-income individuals, and maintains two, two-year full-time pro bono fellowships for lawyers interested in a career in public service.
