CFI Legal Awards, 2013: Morales & Besa for their Pro Bono Work in Chile

Morales & Besa

Pro bono work has been important at Morales & Besa since the firm was founded twenty years ago.

They have been trailblazers ever since and take their responsibilities very seriously. Pro bono is voluntary for the firm’s lawyers but the take up is high. The firm has created a pro bono manual and a committee to decide on eligibility. When lawyer performance is evaluated equal weight is given to pro bono work and hours charged to clients. The judges commended Morales & Besa on the firm’s constant encouragement to pro bono activities in Chile.
