Immigration Equality named Kirkland & Ellis a 2014 Safe Haven Pro Bono Award Winner. The award recognizes law firms that have gone above and beyond to win safe refuge for LGBT and HIV-positive asylum seekers. Kirkland has served Immigration Equality's asylum clients for nearly a decade. In 2013, Kirkland represented refugees before the asylum office and in immigration court. Kirkland also won asylum for the first transgender Russia asylum-seeker accepted into the pro bono program, whom intellectual property partner Joseph Loy introduced and honored at Immigration Equality’s awards event on May 28, 2014, in New York City.
