Tilleke & Gibbins is pleased to announce its receipt of an award for contributions to pro bono services in the Asia-Pacific region at the 10th Annual Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation Awards.
These awards honor Lex Mundi member law firms that have provided critical pro bono legal services—helping to strengthen the global rule of law, support the global social entrepreneurship movement and improve lives and communities around the world. Five such awards were given in total, recognizing the contributions of member firms in the Asia-Pacific region, Africa, the Middle East, Central America, and the USA.
“Lex Mundi member firms are critical allies supporting social entrepreneurs’ great efforts. They help these organizations to start, grow and achieve their powerful missions. The 2019 honorees demonstrate how members of the Lex Mundi Network are using their pro bono resources, time and expertise to make a tremendous impact with many of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs. Our member firm recipients, as leading law firms in their jurisdictions, are committed to growing and strengthening the global pro bono culture,” said the Foundation’s Managing Director, Isis Bous.
The award was collected by Tilleke & Gibbins’ co-managing partner and director of dispute resolution, and chair emeritus of Lex Mundi, Tiziana Sucharitkul, at a ceremony during the 2019 Lex Mundi Leadership Summit and Annual Conference in London.
