DLA Piper US — New Perimeter Project (2007)
In Washington, D.C., the global firm DLA Piper US was selected for its New Perimeter project initiative. This initiative expands what it means for lawyers to commit to pro bono service. New Perimeter’s mission is to bring their legal expertise to bear strategically on some of the world’s most pressing problems – creating, providing legal support for, and completing major projects that address such issues as health care, hunger, corruption, environmental sustainability, economic development, law reform and human rights. Their volunteer attorneys work on initiatives in underdeveloped or developing countries, where they assist in building institutions that will endure and open the way for stronger societies and better lives.
