We believe, as business lawyers, that it is our professional duty and ethical responsibility to act also for the most vulnerable and disregarded individuals in our society. Therefore we have developed a flourishing Pro Bono practice, whose focus is to provide free legal advice and assistance to those in need, in favour of non-profit organisations, social cooperatives and communities promoting the public good that are not always able to afford the direct costs for the required legal assistance.

To date, our Pro Bono work consisted of legal assistance and advice offered in specific cases to or through organisations such as, Save the Children, Tide Global Learning, Antigone, DO&MA, CILD.
