Morgan & Morgan is Recognized for its Pro Bono program

 

For the sixth consecutive year, Morgan & Morgan has received the “Leading Lights” recognition in Latin America for the Pro Bono program that the firm executes.

This distinction was granted by the publication Latin Lawyer, who together with the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice conducted an annual survey with regards to institutionalization of the practice, high standards in this area and active participation of the lawyers. Only two Panamanian firms managed to achieve this recognition, sharing honors with others of very high caliber across the region.

“There are more than 20 NGOs who the firm assists on legal matters related to: corporate services, labor and tax procedures, among other areas of law. This allows these organizations to focus on the development of their own activities and at the same time receive training in areas where they are not experts”, said Camila De Vengoechea, coordinator of the program within the firm.

More on the Pro Bono program
Among the achievements of Morgan & Morgan in the execution of the Pro Bono program, are the support in the drafting of bills such as: Law regulating the activities of volunteer work in the Republic of Panama, Law creating the Food Bank of Panama, Law that creates the Central Blood Bank, Law that creates the Recycling Chamber of Panama, Law that creates the Board of Trustees of the National Theater of Panama and the Law that creates the Board of Trustees of the Reina Torre de Araúz Museum.
