Firm also recognized for associate retention, diversity & inclusion, and more
New York—Chambers Associate, a leading law firm guide for students, has recognized Holwell Shuster & Goldberg as an Elite firm for pro bono – the highest recognition given – in its 2021 Pro Bono Law Firm Rankings. The rankings, which highlight the best performing law firms for pro bono work, are based on responses from junior associates and score firms on a combination of all topics that can affect an associate’s pro bono experience. HSG is one of only 10 firms ranked Elite nationally.
When commenting on the firm’s commitment to pro bono work, HSG associates told Chambers they were grateful for their experiences, noting they are often lead attorneys on pro bono matters. One added it’s “very common” for partners to let them spend significant time on pro bono matters, and partners are “really encouraging” of this work.
HSG lawyers have a long history of providing pro bono representation in matters ranging from class-wide civil rights litigation to habeas corpus petitions on behalf of indigent plaintiffs, including high-stakes commercial, immigration, and domestic relations matters. Chambers Associate highlighted the firm’s work with its corporate partner, non-profit organization Her Justice, on getting access to justice for indigenous women and assisting with divorces and child support, as well as the firm’s groundbreaking workplace discrimination cases filed on behalf of Frontier Airlines pilots and flight attendants who asserted claims based on Frontier’s failure to provide accommodations related to pregnancy and breastfeeding.
In addition to being named a top 10 firm in the country for pro bono, Chambers Associate also recognized HSG as a leading firm for associate retention, diversity & inclusion, associate quality of life, associate satisfaction, and associate career development. The firm was also ranked #2 in the Covid-19 Top 25, a ranking of firms that associates thought responded best to the pandemic.
Overall, associates noted HSG partners “ask what kind of work we want to do, look at how to give us better development opportunities, and get us involved in the firm as future leaders,” adding “there’s room for every person who works here to shape the culture and practice of the firm.”
