James Sandman, the firm's former managing partner from 1995 to 2005, will work alongside pro bono committee chair Philip Horton.

The firm has also committed lawyers to spend 15 per cent of their time on pro bono work and decreed that every Arnold & Porter lawyer work on least one pro bono matter each year.
