We seek to contribute to bridging the gaps that exist in universal access to justice and quality legal services by providing pro bono services.

Since the outset, we have been determined to share and spread the knowledge we have acquired over the course of over 50 years of history with our internal and external public. Providing pro bono services is a long-standing tradition in the history of the firm. It was encouraged by founding partner António Maria Pereira and has remained at the heart of what we do ever since.

Institutions can make direct requests for assistance for potential beneficiaries, and our lawyers and staff can also propose worthy beneficiaries. Our Social Impact Committee then studies these requests and proposals carefully, then chooses which beneficiaries to support based on whether they align with our social impact strategy.

We help in the following ways:

  • Free legal assistance in access to the courts
  • Provision of legal services to non-profit organisations that support social solidarity and public interest causes
  • Provision of specific legal services to help resolve social problems, including environmental problems
  • Provision of legal services to PLMJ’s support staff
