The cases are as diverse as the firms. Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher advised an Olympic caliber windsurfer in a dispute with U.S. Sailing. Chadbourne & Parke helped a Colombian woman reunite with her 9-year-old daughter. Boies, Schiller & Flexner spent more than 7,000 pro bono hours on litigation to force the state of Florida to provide health care for poor kids. Shearman & Sterling continues its multiyear effort to act as the de facto clerk at the Rwanda genocide trials (the firm has devoted roughly 40,000 hours to the cause).
