National Law Journal Names Latham to 2013 Pro Bono Hot List

Second annual list recognizes firms that are doing “good on a global level”.

January 09, 2013

The National Law Journal has named Latham & Watkins to its 2013 Pro Bono Hot List, in recognition of the firm’s work with the anti-slavery organization Not For Sale (NFS). Latham is one of nine firms to have been named to the list. The list identifies, in part, “firms that are deploying highly sophisticated corporate and intellectual property skills to do good on a global level.” A team of Latham attorneys has worked with NFS to develop economic solutions to human trafficking. In particular, the team helped structure a unique and innovative social enterprise called REBBL Tea, a beverage company. Profits from REBBL Tea (for “Roots, Extracts, Berries, Bark, and Leaves”), which debuted in fall 2012, will go toward stabilizing and revitalizing a region in the Peruvian Amazon that is vulnerable to forced labor and human trafficking.
