Pro bono publico (meaning “for the public good”; usually shortened as pro bono) is a Latin phrase that refers to voluntary and non-profit professional work.
Legal Pro Bono services are provided by lawyers voluntarily and without remuneration. NGOs and their beneficiaries thereby obtain legal services, mainly comprised of litigation, legal counselling and drafting of legal documents.
Pro Bono services are an integral part of our history since the inception of the firm. Dündar Sır is recognized nationwide for its significant commitment to Pro Bono work since we encourage our lawyers to use their dedication and qualities to help people in need. The firm takes responsibility with all its devotion and transfers its legal experience to right people with social responsibility so that everyone can access justice equally and especially the disadvantaged groups with limited opportunities can receive good attorneyship services.
By virtue of this responsibility, the professional team handles many cases in the public interest, and advises several organizations and individual every year on a voluntary and gratuitous basis.
In addition, our team has also taken initiatives to betterment of the legal grounds of Pro Bono works in Turkey before public authorities.
We are proud to announce that Dündar Sır Law Firm was deemed worthy of the 2018 Pro Bono Law Firm of the Year Award, which is given to a single law firm once a year by İstanbul Bilgi University and İstanbul Bar Association, for the legal services it provides voluntarily.
