Stibbe strives to use its legal expertise to make a real difference in projects of NGOs and to make a positive contribution to society. Each year, we handle a number of pro bono matters that have social significance and, in several cases, address a fundamental legal principle. Our advice frequently focuses on complex issues of civil, administrative, corporate or human rights law.
Pro bono requests
Requests for pro bono assistance are assessed by our pro bono committee, which is an initiative of Stibbe members and consists of lawyers with expertise in various areas of law. The assessment is made in light of the following criteria:
When the pro bono commission decides to take on a case on a pro bono basis, the case is assigned to a team of lawyers within the firm with expertise in the relevant areas of law.
