Limeres’ lawyers strongly believe in fulfilling the obligation to assist through pro bono work to those individuals and groups unable to afford legal services in Argentina. Limeres is a charter signatory to most Argentine Associations for Pro Bono services, pledging to commit attorney time equivalent to a decent percentage of the firm’s billable hours to work on all sorts of pro bono matters.

Our attorneys also counsel nonprofit charitable and cultural organizations and handle representations in penal cases.
The firm’s long-standing commitment to pro bono work has been based largely on the belief that such work is part of the basic role of lawyers as members of our profession and as officers of the court. In addition, our younger associates derive substantial benefits from pro bono projects, including: (i) one-on-one mentoring; (ii) the broadening of their legal experience outside their practice area; and (iii) the chance to see more immediate and direct results of their own efforts.

Our basic approach to pro bono work is to permit each lawyer to select his/her own pro bono matters, as long as they do not conflict with or contravene the interests of other clients. In appropriate instances, we have, as a law firm, marshaled teams of lawyers to pursue larger matters, which could have a great impact on shortcomings in the prevailing system.
