On March 29, Hughes Hubbard was among several law firms in Washington, D.C., honored at the ninth annual “40 at 50 Judicial Pro Bono Recognition Breakfast,” organized by the D.C. Circuit Judicial Conference Standing Committee on Pro Bono Legal Services. John Wood, who oversees the pro bono program in the D.C. office, and associates Alicia Winston and Ben Grillot represented the firm at the breakfast.

Hughes Hubbard and 28 other law firms were recognized for having at least 40 percent of their attorneys perform at least 50 hours of pro bono work, an honor the D.C. office has received four times in recent years. In addition, for the first time, Hughes Hubbard was among a select group of seven firms recognized for having at least 50 percent of their lawyers do at least 50 hours of pro bono work.

More than 100 firms were eligible for consideration this year. The criteria for firms included having a D.C. office and employing at least 25 attorneys.
