Our founder Daniel Ferrere promoted Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) years before the term existed and made it part of our culture. We apply the same quality demands that characterize our client service to our causes for improvement of our communities and actions in the public interest.

We encourage all our members to become active agents, making their community a better, fairer place, with more opportunities. To reach this goal we concentrate our economic support on the activities and NGOs to which our members donate their time.

Pro Bono

Article I. Purpose.

We are aware of the difficulties some members of our community have in accessing the justice system and legal services. As attorneys, we are in a unique position to assist, and we have the ethical obligation to take on pro bono work in order to provide such access. We therefore encourage pro bono work among our attorneys as an integral part of our professional obligations, and we recognize those who participate in pro bono work.

Article II. Beneficiaries.

We assist pro bono clients in areas of law where assistance may be lacking. We offer pro bono services to persons or groups with limited resources, or those in situations of vulnerability or social marginalization, as well as to nongovernmental organizations that assist them.

Article III. FERRERE’s Responsibility.

We provide our pro bono clients with the same quality professional service as that provided to all of our clients. Our pro bono services are free of charge. Pro bono clients are responsible for necessary expenses that arise in connection with the pro bono services, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Article IV. Pro Bono Committee.

FERRERE’s Pro Bono Committee, comprised of associates and partner coordinators, directs and coordinates pro bono work, as well as determines the resources available for pro bono cases.

Article V. Acceptance of pro bono cases.

Those seeking pro bono legal assistance must submit a request for assistance on the forms that we provide. The Pro Bono Committee analyzes the requests and determines whether they meet the criteria for acceptance.


Corporate Social Responsbility

In addition to specific actions for the public good, we actively promote the concept of goods citizenship and urge our members to be responsible and committed agents in their communities.
