  • Morrison & Foerster LLP, USA
  • Claro & Cia., Chile
  • Noerr, Germany
  • The Legal Circle, Bangladesh
  • Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick, Belgium

“Lex Mundi member firms are critical allies supporting social entrepreneurs’ great efforts,” said the foundation's managing director, Isis Bous. “They help these organizations to start, grow, and achieve their powerful missions. The 2022 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 ventures. Our member firm recipients, leading law firms in their jurisdictions, are committed to growing and strengthening pro bono culture, and thereby, the global ESG movement.”

With more than 15 years of service dedicated to social enterprises, Lex Mundi member firms have provided pro bono support to nearly 1,000 social entrepreneurs on more than 2,000 projects through the foundation. Lex Mundi lawyers help social enterprises scale faster, expand reach, secure funding, and ultimately achieve greater success.
