Stibbe strives to use its legal expertise to make a real difference for individuals and NGOs and to make a positive contribution to society. Since 2002, Stibbe colleagues have been investing their time and effort to work on cases with a social impact, on a pro bono basis.
Our pro bono policy focuses on social relevance, the development of the law, and the rule of law in our society. This focus means we often deal with pro bono cases in which fundamental rights are at stake.
Requests for pro bono assistance are assessed by our pro bono committee, which consists of employees with expertise in various areas of law. The assessment is made in the 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.
See below a small selection of the significant cases to which Stibbe has been able to contribute with its legal knowledge. Additionally, here you will find more information about the IMC Weekendschool.
Stibbe receives requests for pro bono assistance from within its own network or from Pro Bono Connect, the clearing house in which Stibbe is actively involved. If you would like to submit a request for pro bono assistance to Stibbe's pro bono committee, please contact us at email@example.com.
