The 2O1O American Lawyer Pro Bono Report ranks Boies, Schiller & Flexner 68th out of 2OO surveyed firms -- a marked improvement from last year's ranking of 89th and 132nd in 2OO8.
The Firm is prominently mentioned in one of five feature stories accompanying the report, detailing our contributions to the Haiti relief effort. BSF associate Markenzy LaPointe is mentioned specifically; read the story here.
The Pro Bono Report ranks the nation’s 200 highest-grossing firms based on the number of hours dedicated to pro bono work. Each firm's score is calculated by looking at the average number of pro bono hours per lawyer, and the percentage of lawyers who perform over 20 hours of pro bono work.
Pro Bono work is defined by American Lawyer in its report as "legal services donated to organizations or individuals that could not otherwise afford them. [This does] not include work done by paralegals or summer associates, nor time spent on bar association work, on non-legal work for charities, or on boards of nonprofit organizations."
