Pro Bono

Expanding Access to Justice

We recognize the legal community has a unique responsibility in giving access to the legal system and to justice to those who need it. Pro Bono is a key pillar of our responsible business strategy and for the role we wish to play in society.

We place great importance on mandates related to social causes, in line with our strong belief that Pro Bono services are a crucial aspect of an attorney's ethical responsibility. We support individuals and companies in need, and in causes of public interest.

All mandates within the firm are treated with equal importance. Team members with the appropriate expertise are assigned respectively from partner to trainee lawyer level.

Partner Organizations we regularly support on an on-going Pro Bono
basis include:

  • OrphanHealthcare
  • Save the Children
  • Swiss Red Cross (Zurich)
  • United Nations
  • Martin Ennals Foundation

Various members of the firm sit on the board of various charitable / philanthropic foundations as ambassadors of Schellenberg Wittmer.
