Building hope for the future
Connected to the Community
Service to our communities is a core FaegreBD value, reflected in our robust pro bono and community service programs. We use a unified, award-winning approach to sharply focus our professional and philanthropic resources to promote access to justice and support our communities.
Pro bono service is fundamental to who we are as lawyers. At FaegreBD, we provide pro bono service to increase fair and impartial justice and promote the rule of law for all people, especially those who are unable to afford the legal services they need. In doing so, we provide value to our clients, our communities and our world. Our pro bono practice includes: direct service to low-income clients to meet basic needs for shelter, economic opportunity, family stability and access to justice; transactional services for community nonprofit organizations and emerging entrepreneurs; projects to promote international human rights and the rule of law; and impact litigation to address larger issues of public policy and constitutional law.
We provide a wide range of firm-sponsored community service opportunities for all firm personnel to support their local communities. Our activities leverage the time and talent of our employees to address community needs, emphasizing the following as primary areas of focus: children and families, education, job-readiness, housing and homelessness, veterans affairs, and hunger.
FaegreBD's community efforts are overseen by our Pro Bono and Community Service Advisory Group and full-time, professional staff.
