The U.S. federal courts on March 29 recognized Ropes & Gray as one of seven firms in Washington, D.C. where more than half of its lawyers contributed 50 or more hours of pro bono work last year.

More than 100 firms were eligible for consideration this year. In recognizing the seven firms for their pro bono work, Chief Judge Royce Lamberth of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, said a firm’s commitment to public service is best illustrated in the example set by firm leaders.

Last year, Ropes & Gray also received the 2011 Law Firm Pro Bono Award from the Washington, D.C. Bar Association for its work representing refugees, veterans, neglected children and disabled individuals.
