Faegre Drinker is proud to have been selected to receive a 2021 Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation Award for providing critical pro bono legal services and outstanding service and support.
Each year, the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation Awards are presented to recognize Lex Mundi member law firms that have supported the work of the Foundation, helping to strengthen the global rule of law, support the global social entrepreneurship movement and improve lives and communities around the world. Corporate partner Angie Castille, who serves as chair of Lex Mundi’s board of directors, and members of Faegre Drinker’s nonprofit group provided pro bono assistance on various projects.
Pro bono is a core value at Faegre Drinker and part of who we are and what we do, every day. Throughout the firm’s history, Faegre Drinker attorneys and staff have fought for the causes that appeal to their sense of justice and are important to the communities in which they live and work. Since 2015, we have devoted more than 230,000 hours to pro bono work, providing legal counsel, courtroom advocacy and skilled representation to pro bono causes and clients that are as varied as our attorneys.
The 2021 award winners were announced during the Lex Mundi Virtual Annual Meeting of Members.
