Tonkon Torp is proud to be ranked as the number 1 Midsize Law Firm in the nation for Pro Bono in the 2022 Vault list. Vault’s annual national rankings are based on information submitted by verified associates in the legal industry, and are a well-respected national recruiting reference for the legal community.
“I couldn’t be more proud that our associate colleagues rank the firm’s community contribution so highly,” shared partner James Hein, Chair of Tonkon Torp’s Pro Bono Committee. “Our attorneys readily seek out opportunities to give sage advice to nonprofit boards, counsel individuals with life-altering legal issues, and push the envelope with impact litigation that brings positive change to many. We are honored to carry on the rich tradition of service begun by our founding partners.”
Pro Bono is a long-term core value at Tonkon Torp. Partners Owen Blank, Gwen Griffith, and James Hein have each been honored with the prestigious Multnomah Bar Association Pro Bono award in recognition of their significant contribution to the community, and the firm selected partner Steven Wilker to receive the inaugural Don H. Marmaduke Pro Bono Service Award in recognition of his impactful work with Oregon ACLU. Some of the firm’s most notable recent pro bono work is directed at effecting change at a system level.
Tonkon Torp also earned top placements in 16 categories across the 2022 Vault ranking results. Most notably, the firm was ranked number five as the Overall Best Midsize Law Firm to Work For in the nation – the highest ranking for an Oregon midsize law firm.
