In 2015, more than one hundred Wiggin and Dana lawyers and professional staff dedicated time and effort to 108 pro bono matters. The firm’s longstanding commitment to pro bono work has been honored by various organizations, including the Connecticut Bar Association, Connecticut Legal Services and the Anti-Defamation League. The firm’s pro bono clients include The Ronald McDonald House, the Center for Children’s Advocacy, the Connecticut Veteran’s Legal Center, New Haven Legal Assistance, the Connecticut Food Bank, the NAACP, and many others. The firm also frequently volunteers to serve as pro bono counsel to indigent persons in civil cases pending in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. One representative case was handled by Wiggin and Dana’s Joseph C. Merschman, a cochair of this committee’s securities litigation subcommittee and an editor of this newsletter.
