The Brattle Group’s pro bono program provides underserved communities in our legal system with access to economic expertise and analytical skills. We collaborate with pro bono committees at leading law firms as well as nonprofits such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (Lawyers’ Committee) to provide expert testimony, reports, economic analyses, settlement guidance, and data management.
Consultants from across offices, practice areas, and levels work closely together to deliver clear insights that help address important social issues. They apply the same economic rigor to these projects as they do to other client engagements. At times, consultants will have the opportunity to take on more senior roles on these projects. Notable topics that Brattle has helped to analyze include criminal justice reform, voting rights, modern-day debtors’ prisons, refugee resettlement, and child support, among others.
Many cite their pro bono work among the highlights of their experience at Brattle.
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 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.
