Tilleke & Gibbins has developed a pro bono practice serving the needs of foundations and charitable organizations that care for needy children, alleviate poverty through microfinance, and that otherwise serve society’s needs. We also represent individuals on a case-by-case basis.
Nonprofit organizations that wish to provide services in Southeast Asia must comply with a number of rules and regulations and must undertake many of the same operations as a for-profit business. And often, they must do so on a shoestring budget. We help charitable organizations channel more of their time and funds into serving the community by providing free legal services to foundations that meet our criteria. Our lawyers provide legal advice and assistance on matters including:
- Foundation establishment and compliance
- IP registration
- Tax issues
- Employment law (including work permits and visas)
- Leases and other property transactions
- Contract negotiation and drafting
- Litigation and dispute resolution
- Government relations
