Panama, January 25, 2022. For the ninth year in a row, Morgan & Morgan has received the “Leading Lights” recognition in Latin America for the firm´s Pro Bono program. In Panama, only Morgan & Morgan achieved this status, sharing honors with other leading firms across the region.
This distinction is granted annually by Latin Lawyer, who, together with the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice, investigates the institutionalization of the practice within the firms and the participation of their legal team.
In 2021, the firm reaffirms its commitment to offer legal advice to more than 20 non-for-profit organizations (NGOs) who received legal guidance and training on issues related to corporate, labor, tax, intellectual property, among other areas of law, and some public interest projects.
We are very proud of the 40 lawyers of the firm who participated in this program during 2021, contributing more than 900 hours of their time and experience to these NGOs, and other research and social projects.
