Latham & Watkins has long championed pro bono work, providing millions of dollars in pro bono legal services and raising significant funding for non-profits in communities across the globe each year. The firm has achieved victories in pro bono matters that run the gamut from children’s rights advocacy and land use to asylum and civil rights protection.

Among the firm's more recent pro bono projects, a team of lawyers from Los Angeles helped lead an effort to obtain pensions for Holocaust survivors who worked in German-controlled ghettos during World War II.

One of our partners is on the Board of LA’s Promise, a non-profit organization transforming under-served communities by preparing every child in one South Los Angeles neighborhood to graduate high school ready for success in college and in their careers.

Many of our partners are members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, and the LA Sports Council and Sports Lawyers Association.
