Pro Bono Program

The Brattle Group’s pro bono program provides underserved communities in our legal system with access to economic expertise and analytical skills. We partner with pro bono committees at leading law firms as well as nonprofits such as the ACLU, the NAACP, and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law to provide expert testimony, reports, economic analyses, and data management.

Consultants from across offices, practice areas, and levels work closely together to deliver clear insights that help address important social issues. Our pro bono cases have involved issues including criminal justice reform, voting rights, modern-day debtors’ prisons, and refugee resettlement. Many consultants cite their pro bono work among the highlights of their experience at Brattle.

We Focus on Our Core Values: Respect, Performance, Collaboration, and Integrity

We take our values seriously and strive to live up to them every day. The way we treat each other, our clients, our communities, and the firm is as important to us as the work we do.

We Are Privately Held

Our Principals own the firm – not outside investors or shareholders. We set our own objectives, take the long view, and focus on doing the best possible job for our clients while also creating the best possible environment for our employees.

We Are Just the Right Size

We provide a small-company atmosphere, where people know each other by name and develop strong professional relationships, yet we’re large enough to have a global reputation in our markets and to attract the best cases.
