Carey was recognized, once again, for its pro bono work

November 26, 2014, by Rosie Cresswell - LATIN LAWYER

Here we list 55 “Leading Lights” from our survey respondents, celebrating law firms whose efforts towards pro bono during 2013 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 clearinghouses, 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.

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.
