The ADP Clients Corner

ADP is pleased to feature the work and accomplishments of our exceptional clients.


Compassion Over Killing (COK) has been working to end animal cruelty in the meat, milk, and egg industries since 1995. Their corporate campaigning has successfully brought more vegan options at Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Dunkin’ Donuts, Subway, Morningstar Farms, and other similar corporations, which have recently decided to offer products like almond milk and vegan burgers as alternatives to meat and dairy products. 

They are also one of a small number of groups that conducts undercover investigations, gathering footage with drives their cutting-edge Legal Advocacy Program and results in groundbreaking convictions for animal cruelty and against cruel standard industry practices, reaches hundreds of millions of people through media exposure, and becomes the basis for their award-winning original video content, such as their commercial “Side of Truth” (featured on MTV, Comedy Central, Animal Planet, and Hulu), and the short film, “Whose Side are You On?” 

COK is inspiring people everywhere to choose vegan — as well as helping restaurants and corporations offer vegan options. COK has also been engaged in work such as working with city councils around the U.S. to establish Meatless Mondays, its VegWeek campaign, and running DC VegFest, all of which help achieve COK’s goal of making the world a kinder, cleaner, healthier place to live.


Since the 1980s, In Defense of Animals ("IDA") has done exceptional animal protection work in the US and abroad. We believe strongly in its people, mission and vision, and are proud to be its lawyers.

IDA’s latest project: 60 billboards throughout LA are raising awareness of the dairy industry’s brutal realities by directing viewers to Dairy is Scary, an eye-opening YouTube video. IDA’s campaign is very well-conceived and executed, and highly effective. For additional information or to see how you can help with IDA’s mission, please visit its website,


ADP — which provides legal counsel to its rapidly-expanding client base free of charge — is grateful to have been able to counsel IDA on aspects of this project.
