Pro Bono



We push each other to ever-greater pro bono service.

From representing international refugees fleeing persecution to helping low-income entrepreneurs launch a business, we give our time and skills to ensure equal access to justice. In fact, we have a partner dedicated to connecting our lawyers to opportunities for pro bono service. As a signatory to the Pro Bono Institute’s Law Firm Pro Bono Challenge©, Nixon Peabody has committed to spending more than 3% of our time on pro bono.

NP partner Richa Naujoks and Wello CEO Cynthia Koenig share the story of their work and the impact it's had in rural India. 

Our pro bono program has many touch points. We are involved with many societal issues ranging from reducing gun violence to preventing racial profiling and ensuring diversity in education. We partner with clients providing pro bono service, often serving side-by-side with them. We develop community-minded lawyers of the future by getting all of our summer associates involved in pro bono projects. And some of our attorneys tap their backgrounds and contacts in government to contribute pro bono service at the policy level—shaping legislation that addresses tomorrow’s challenges.

At Nixon Peabody, we give billable credit for pro bono work and recognize our lawyers’ achievements through an awards program and at evaluation time. We believe our time giving back is time well spent.

Nixon Peabody’s 2018 pro bono numbers

  • 53 average pro bono hours per lawyer
  • 3.6% of our billable time to pro bono
  • 32k+ attorney pro bono hours
  • 91% attorney participation in pro bono
