This year’s FIPBD was a success! Led by CPBO, 48 legal departments in the finance and insurance industries, in partnership with legal services organizations and law firms, hosted 81 events across the globe providing pro bono legal services to low-income, marginalized communities and related training.

Thanks to this collaborative effort, more than 1,300 in-house and law firm attorneys and legal staff served more than 1,200 clients. We are deeply grateful to everyone who volunteered and provided much-needed legal services to underserved individuals and marginalized communities. Read more about this year’s events here.
