Great values are the bedrock of a great law firm. Weil’s Pro Bono practice implements the Firm’s deeply held belief that contributing to the legal representation of the less fortunate and unjustly treated in our society is among the highest values a law firm can hold. Weil’s commitment to pro bono work is deeply ingrained in our culture. We believe that it is our obligation to volunteer our skills to those who would otherwise face severe challenges as victims of injustice or abuse without legal representation. Along with helping individual clients, Weil considers it essential to assist groups that work on behalf of the public to address issues of economic and social justice.
With approximately 1,100 lawyers in offices around the world, Weil operates according to the “one firm” principle, allowing us to bring the right mix of firm-wide skill and local-market presence to deliver the coordinated legal advice necessary to help our clients achieve their sophisticated goals and objectives.
Founded in 1931, Weil has provided legal services to the largest public companies, private equity firms and financial institutions for more than 90 years. Widely recognized by those covering the legal profession, Weil’s lawyers regularly advise clients globally on their most complex Litigation, Corporate, Restructuring, and Tax and Benefits matters. Weil has been a pioneer in establishing a geographic footprint that has allowed the Firm to partner with clients wherever they do business.
Our Philanthropic Committee
Weil’s Philanthropic Committee oversees all public service programs and contributions to U.S.-based nonprofit organizations that meet the Firm and Weil Foundation’s philanthropic giving guidelines. Contributions further the Firm or our clients’ corporate citizenship, pro bono, or diversity and inclusion efforts. Weil’s philanthropic giving candidate complies with the Human Rights Campaign’s charitable giving guidelines.
Weil is committed to engaging as a responsible corporate citizen in the communities where we live and work and is one of the first law firms in the legal industry to implement a comprehensive community engagement program, including employee giving and volunteer opportunities for all U.S. and U.K. attorneys and administrative staff, taking place during and outside of work hours.
Diversity and Inclusion
One of the qualities separating Weil from our peers is our culture. Diversity and inclusion have been core values since our founding. For the past 30 years, Weil has been a leader in investing in formal initiatives to empower and engender an inclusive culture. Our culture of respect and support creates an environment where all feel comfortable and encouraged to excel.
