Pro Bono

We help non-profit organisations so that they, in turn, can help others.

We collaborate with various organisations to aid small businesses and start-ups.

We run pro bono clinics and assist non-profit organisations with their registration and compliance issues.

We provide legal advice to those in the most desperate need.

And we do this with the same gusto we employ for all our clients – for the financial year 1 March 2022 to 28 February 2023, we contributed 10 256 pro bono hours valued at approximately ZAR 28.4 million.

Ishishini Lethu – our flagship project

Small businesses and start-ups can make use of our pro bono corporate legal services through our Ishishini Lethu Project.

Launched in August 2013, the project creates a support system for emerging businesses working to establish themselves. It also allows our commercial lawyers to contribute to the communities we operate in according to their areas of expertise. Since the inception of the project, we have assisted numerous small businesses to understand and exercise their rights and participate more effectively in the economy.
