Carey one of the Pro Bono Leading Lights 2015

19 November, 2015 by Rosie Cresswell

Here we list 55 “Leading Lights” from our survey respondents, celebrating law firms whose efforts towards pro bono during 2014 stood out. The list consists of firms that we feel deserve to be put in the spotlight thanks to their contribution to the development of a pro bono culture in Latin America.

Several factors played a role in drawing up this list. These include firms’ answers to the survey with regards to institutionalisation of the practice and examples of their recent pro bono cases. We also asked for feedback from clearing houses, the Vance Center and other pro bono professionals where possible and considered the development of firms’ pro bono practices if they participated in last year’s survey, as well as further research. The list includes behemoths of regional legal community that bringing significant resources to bear, and small firms from whom personal dedication can make a significant difference.

While this is by no means an exhaustive list (for a start it only mentions firms that participated in our survey), we hope it will give readers an idea of the efforts that firms across Latin America are taking to provide free legal services to those in need.

Of course, it should be noted that simply participating in this survey demonstrates awareness among all participants of the need for pro bono and each one had interesting developments to report. We hope that all respondents will continue to advance their pro bono practices and come back to us to report their efforts in the years to come.
