Pro Bono

Each year, Simpson Thacher's lawyers devote many thousands of hours to pro bono projects.

These matters are as varied as representing:

  • Immigrants and asylum seekers
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • Indigent criminal defendants, clients seeking exoneration, and expungement of criminal records
  • Veterans applying for service connected benefits
  • Micro-entrepreneurs
  • Environmental organizations seeking to protect endangered species and wilderness areas throughout the nation
  • Nonprofits in corporate and tax matters
  • Children seeking access to special education services in school

We also handle impact litigation involving civil and human rights issues, and write amicus briefs on constitutional issues before the U.S. Supreme Court and Circuit Courts on behalf of civil rights organizations nationwide.
