Charity and pro bono activities are an integral part of our work. We believe that helping those in need should be a matter of course for leading market players in all industries. In addition, these public benefit activities also provide us with opportunities to meet interesting people in an informal matter and establish new contacts. Our efforts are aimed at the following in particular:
The firm’s annual 2010 budget for these activities amounted to approximately CZK 3 million (out of which CZK 500,000 was distributed in the form of direct donations and the remainder as pro bono legal services). We are planning to increase this budget in the next years in connection with the further expansion of our firm and our lawyers’ capacity. In addition to the long-term projects referred to above, we have also supported the People in Need foundation, Leontinka foundation and Dětský mozek foundation.
In the context of our pro bono legal services, we also continue to support small and medium-sized enterprises in close cooperation with the Economic Chamber of the Czech Republic, the Czech SME Union and the CVCA (Czech Private Equity & Venture Capital Association).
Presented by Chambers & Partners, the prestigious British rating agency, HAVEL & PARTNERS has been shortlisted among ten best-performing European law firms for pro bono work in 2021.
