LATIN LAWYER AND THE VANCE CENTER’S
PRO BONO LEADING LIGHTS 2022
We are happy to share with you that BGBG has once again been recognized by Latin Lawyer and The Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice as Leading Lights 2022.
Leading Lights recognizes law firms that make notable contributions to strengthening the culture of pro bono legal work in Latin America.
Message from Fredrik Karlsson about Pro bono: Leading Lights
Several factors played a role in drawing up this list. These include firms’ answers to the survey with regards to institutionalisation of the practice, work done and examples of their recent pro bono cases. We also asked for feedback from clearinghouses and the Vance Center and considered the development of firms’ pro bono practices if they participated in earlier surveys, as well as further research. The list includes behemoths of the regional legal community bringing significant resources to bear, and small firms from whom personal dedication can make a significant difference.
This is by no means an exhaustive list (for a start, it only mentions firms that participated in our survey), but 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.
