Challenging pro bono work has long been a cornerstone of 42law’s practice, with deep roots in Vienna and throughout Germany. It embodies our European spirit of legal aid and our commitment to justice. The full resources of 42law are brought into play for every pro bono matter, from assisting a low-income family in Berlin to advising a coalition of European Parliament members.
While our European engagements are prominent, we also maintain connections with the US and the UK, ensuring a global perspective. Our pro bono work is an invaluable platform for our lawyers to hone their legal skills. Whether in Munich, Hamburg, or Vienna, associates are urged to embrace pro bono clients, delivering the same premier representation we extend to our paying clientele. Under seasoned partners’ guidance, our associates lead cases defending victims of discrimination in Germany, supporting asylum seekers in Vienna, or aiding non-profits in Frankfurt. From representing refugees at the borders of Europe to taking part in transformative cases that impact European law, our attorneys at 42law have left indelible marks on the legal landscape. Such opportunities are available across all of 42law’s European and international offices.
Our legal collaborations span esteemed European entities such as the Vienna Centre for Legal Aid, Berlin’s Immigrant Assistance, European Center for Justice, and more. Notably, we’ve also partnered with organizations in the US and UK, reflecting our diverse client base. Many of these institutions have acknowledged 42law for our unwavering commitment to pro bono work.
Further solidifying our commitment, we are proud members of the European Legal Support Network and have affiliations with both the International Law Firm Alliance and the UK’s Legal Aid Society.
