Lawyers Alliance for New York has recognized Davis Polk with a 2021 Cornerstone Award. The awards are presented annually to a select group of individuals and institutions that have made extraordinary contributions through pro bono legal services that help nonprofits to address critical human needs and improve the quality of life for thousands of low-income New Yorkers.
Davis Polk has partnered with Lawyers Alliance for more than 30 years, and the organization recognized the firm's longstanding commitment to pro bono work and serving its nonprofit clients "with the same determination and legal excellence that define the firm's broader culture." Lawyers Alliance noted that Davis Polk received one of the first Cornerstone Awards, in 1997, and "is the rare recipient of a second Institutional Cornerstone because of the continued breadth of its corporate law and transactional pro bono work, especially as nonprofits have needed timely legal help during the pandemic."
The awards were presented on December 2, 2021.
