At the beginning of 2015, bnt | attorneys at law Bratislava participated in the 15th annual Via Bona Slovakia Competition under the auspices of the Nadácia Pontis foundation and was acknowledged as “Supporter of volunteering”. The gala was held on 26 March 2015 in the Refinery Gallery in Bratislava.
Last year bnt rendered several pro bono services; among them was successful cooperation with the Ulita citizens’ initiative, which helps children and young adults from marginalized groups in Bratislava. Lawyers from bnt helped solve a contract violation by a contractor who refused to finish construction of a playground despite receiving advance payment. The company stopped communicating with the citizens’ initiative, leading Ulita to seek help via the Advokáti Pro Bono Program supported by Nadácia Pontis. Since quick action was needed, bnt accepted the case. The construction company refused to communicate with the lawyers, but thanks to previous experience with similar cases, Ulita and bnt won the case.
