Based on our “effort and enthusiasm in supporting pro bono clients over the last year,” Tilleke & Gibbins has been named the “2015 Domestic Law Firm of the Year” at this year’s TrustLaw Awards. In recognizing exceptional pro bono work, TrustLaw singled out just one domestic law firm, one international law firm, and one in-house legal team globally for its team-based awards.
Through projects introduced by TrustLaw, Tilleke & Gibbins has provided pro bono services to a number of NGOs and social entrepreneurs working on a diverse range of issues—including human trafficking, child marriage, and the rights of migrant workers—across Southeast Asia.
TrustLaw is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono legal program, responsible for connecting law firms and corporate legal teams with NGOs and social enterprises working to create social and environmental change. The TrustLaw Awards, which were held at the Landmark Hotel in London on September 24, celebrate the most important work being carried out through TrustLaw projects.
