Soon after MAMG was founded, one of the firm’s priorities was to organize its pro bono practice, in line with MAMG’s purpose and its understanding of participating in the transformation of society.
In our pro bono practice, all interns, associates, and partners, as well as, for some activities, members of our administrative area can participate, acting in the defense of human rights and citizenship and to strengthen civil society organizations.
We have established partnerships with recognized organizations, and we are part of the national network Instituto Pro Bono and of the international network TrustLaw, an arm of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
MAMG has also created partnerships and developed philanthropic projects for all employees interested in participating.
