A Message from Our Chairman
The gaps in the legal system can be addressed, one matter at a time. With pro bono work, attorneys become leaders in public service and navigate complex issues for those who otherwise might not be heard. This year, Arent Fox again notched new highs in our work for the public good as our attorneys tackled legal challenges, some unprecedented.
The firm’s commitment to public interest work dates back to the firm’s founding in 1942, and we have consistently prioritized our leadership within the private bar to address unequal access to legal representation. With our four offices, international network, and repertoire of practice and industry experience, we tackled global issues starting at a local level, assisting diverse communities as they faced unique challenges. We are particularly proud of providing office space and support to the new DC Affordable Law Firm.
Over the past year, Arent Fox attorneys have contributed more than 19,000 hours of service. I welcome you to read about some of the transformative stories and thank you for your interest in Arent Fox’s pro bono efforts.
Mark M. Katz, Chairman
