Panama, March 3, 2021. For the eight 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 high-caliber 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 lawyers.
In 2020, 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 46 lawyers of the firm who participated in this program during 2020, contributing more than 1,200 hours of their time and experience to these NGOs, and other research and social projects.
