Patterson Belknap Honored for Pro Bono Service by the New York State Bar Association

April 30, 2007

Our firm today received the New York State Bar Association President’s Pro Bono Service Award for large law firms. A number of public service organizations with whom our lawyers have worked nominated the firm for the award.

Our firm has had 100% participation of attorneys in the pro bono program for the last three years, and we regularly rank in the top ten for pro bono service in The American Lawyer magazine’s annual survey of America’s 200 largest law firms.

“Patterson Belknap is honored to receive this award from the NYSBA in recognition of the pro bono legal services provided by all of our lawyers. Public service is at the heart of our firm, and our greatest reward is seeing the good that comes out of these efforts," said firm Co-Chair William Cavanaugh.
