Law Firms & Clearinghouses

The Vance Center’s partnerships with law firms around the world enable us to provide pro bono legal representation to our clients.

Our own lawyers work directly with clients to identify their needs, and we then invite our law firm partners to work on the projects with us. While some projects call for only one law firm or specialized practice area, we often coordinate with several firms to form a team, analyzing the laws of multiple countries or regions. A U.S.-based law firm, usually one represented on the Vance Center Committee, acts as coordinating counsel on these multi-jurisdictional matters.
