Here we celebrate “Leading Lights”, the law firms making a noteworthy contribution to strengthening Latin America’s pro bono culture.
As clearing house membership reaches an all-time high, the institutions across the region acting as the go-between for law firms and pro bono projects are reinventing themselves, adapting to the times to provide first-class responses to those most in need. They are plugging gaps, as well as making pro bono networks more inclusive.
Necessity is often considered the greatest driver of innovation. As a result of covid-19, the traditional service model for legal advice across all practice areas has had to evolve, pro bono included. Lawyers who work in this field are having to adapt to continue to provide access to justice for vulnerable people in today’s digitalised and distressed world.
Law firms that stand out for the pro bono work done by their lawyers and for their efforts to build a lasting pro bono infrastructure, both internally and in their legal market.
