The firm also engages in legal pro bono work. One of the most renowned case that caught the attention of the media, even of surrounding countries was when the firm’s lawyer represented the association Prévention Information Lutte contre le Sida (PILS) before the Supreme Court in the case of the young Cameroonian student who was denied a residence permit because of her HIV status.
