Pro bono

At Norton Rose Fulbright, we think of ourselves as citizens of the communities where we live and work. That's why every year, we donate thousands of hours to pro bono matters, encouraging our people worldwide to use their legal knowledge and other professional skills to help those who are disadvantaged, underprivileged or who lack access to the advice we can offer.

Norton Rose Fulbright lawyers and staff provide assistance to charitable, nonprofit organizations, community development projects and legal service programs for the poor in the United States, the United Kingdom and internationally. We also routinely partner with industry leaders to provide pro bono services in our communities worldwide.

To encourage lawyers' participation, Norton Rose Fulbright considers pro bono hours in our annual bonus program for associates and pay some costs associated with this work. Additionally, and as a testament to our commitment to pro bono work, we set expectations for pro bono recognition well above the American Bar Association’s recommendations.
