Who are those big law firms representing Guantanamo detainees?

This JURIST post lists Virginia-based Hunton & Williams among the law firms named by a Defense Department official who said in an interview that their clients should make them quit doing it or find other lawyers.

I don't like it when the ABA takes a stand on political matters, but when the big firms get involved in "political" pro bono, they are acting in accordance with their ethical obligations, to their credit, even when they are on the "wrong" side and even when their arguments are losers.
