Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is a law firm in the United States that specializes in business, securities, and intellectual property law. They recently joined eight other U.S. law firms in a groundbreaking initiative to deliver free legal services worth $15 million by 2020 to advance sustainability across the globe. The first-of-its-kind initiative, Lawyers for a Sustainable Economy, offers pro bono legal assistance to entrepreneurs and community-based non-profits taking on key sustainability challenges across multiple economic sectors, in energy, transportation, and land use.
WSGR and six other Lawyers for a Sustainable Economy founding members committed to provide legal services worth at least $2 million by the end of 2020. The participating firms will provide a range of legal services to clients, which may include advising on incorporation, corporate governance, contracts, real estate, IP protection, privacy-related issues, regulatory matters, structuring advice for financing and investment, tax advice, and litigation. Each law firm's voluntary commitment will be implemented in a manner consistent with the firm's own pro bono and conflicts rules and policies.
