Blank Rome’s Comisky Cup Presented to Pittsburgh Office

Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that the firm’s Comisky Cup was presented to Blank Rome’s Pittsburgh office, which led the firm’s pro bono activity with an average of 122 pro hours per attorney in 2020. The Pittsburgh office handled many impressive pro bono cases in 2020, including a successful military discharge upgrade for a navy veteran through the office’s partnership with The Veteran Consortium, representation of underrepresented high school students trying to preserve their athletic eligibility, and representation of an exoneree seeking compensation for her years of wrongful imprisonment, to name a few.  

Named in honor of Marvin Comisky, Blank Rome’s first managing partner and a lifelong supporter of pro bono, the Comisky Cup is awarded annually to the office(s) with the highest pro bono performance at the firm, as determined by the average pro bono hours per attorney and percentage of attorneys completing more than 20 hours of pro bono work per year.
