With 2020 already off to a great start, the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation would like to thank the 57 Lex Mundi member firms that provided pro bono assistance to 72 social entrepreneurs on 142 unique matters in 2019! Thanks to your support, the Foundation had a record year with a match increase of more than 35% over our previous yearly average!
”2019 was a uniquely strong year for the Foundation’s matchmaking program,” said Isis Bous, Managing Director of the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation. "We can attribute the impressive increase in match numbers to a few factors: first, an increase in the number of multi-jurisdictional projects that engaged the power of Lex Mundi’s global expertise; second, the on-boarding of strong new collaborators who bring us inspiring social enterprise clients; and, lastly, robust support and interest from Lex Mundi member firms and lawyers. We are grateful for the participation and support of everyone who worked to make 2019 a record year!”
Since inception, the Foundation has connected 104 Lex Mundi member firms with 777 social entrepreneurs on 1,559 individual matters in 75 countries across the globe! The Foundation is grateful for the consistent, high-quality, critical pro bono legal support that Lex Mundi member firms provide to the world’s leading social entrepreneurs each day.
