Announcing the 2019 Robert M. Dell Prize for Extraordinary Pro Bono Service

November 20, 2019
Congratulations to San Francisco partner Bob Sims.

In 2014, our firm launched the Robert M. Dell Prize for Extraordinary Pro Bono Service, an annual recognition awarded to a Latham lawyer or team who has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to pro bono work. 

This year we are thrilled to recognize Bob Sims, a Litigation & Trial partner in our San Francisco office, and a steadfast advocate for social justice around the globe. 

Since joining Latham as a lateral partner in 2002, he has worked on more than 100 pro bono matters, including helping victims of human trafficking and advising the government of South Sudan on its constitution. Most recently, he co-led a team in a class-action lawsuit that abolished pre-arraignment cash bail and led to significant criminal justice reform in San Francisco.
