    Doing Well and Doing Good: How and Why

    In 2020, the largest firms in the United States donated nearly 5.5 million hours to pro bono clients – but also saw record profits. In fact, the largest and most profitable firms did the most pro bono work. How is it possible to be both profitable and pro bono-minded? Steven Schulman, Pro Bono Partner at Akin Gump, will explain how lawyers and their firms can both do well and do good. Having served more than two decades as both an antitrust lawyer then a pro bono partner, Schulman offers his insights into both law firm economics and pro bono practice. He manages the firm’s world-wide pro bono practice, which devotes more than 100,000 hours annually to a range of clients, from non-profit organizations to individuals in need of protection.
