bnt attorneys-at-law Bratislava will consider offering legal help to organizations which cannot afford it as a part of its corporate social responsibility action plan.

Since 2011 bnt Bratislava has been participating in the Pontis foundation project Advokáti Pro Bono, which involves gratis legal support to non-profit organizations (NPOs). We help to promote justice in society, to protect the public interest and the rights of the poorest. By providing legal support to NPOs the project brings legal knowledge and services closer to the people and makes the activities of NPOs more effective. Associations, foundations and other initiatives can offer long-term and effective support to a greater number of children, senior citizens, people with mental or physical disabilities, homeless people, families in crisis, refugees and the environment.
