Pursuing Justice: The Pro Bono Files

Pro Bono in a Pandemic: A Law Firm Goes All In

April 30, 2020

As soon as it became clear that COVID-19 was going to have a major impact on the United States, Brad Karp, Chairman of the law firm Paul, Weiss, started thinking about how he could help people get through what was coming. From the firm's headquarters in New York City, Brad emailed 1,000 Paul, Weiss lawyers to ask one simple question, "Who wants to work on a pro bono project to help people and small businesses affected by COVID-19?"

Brad and his colleagues, Robert Atkins and Jean McLoughlin, discuss what happened next with host Alicia Aiken.
