Pro Bono

Team Partners

At Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie, we believe that, it is important to play a role in strengthening our community and do so through a number of initiatives including pro bono work. We advise and support organisations, charities, projects and development-oriented individuals whose activities have a positive social impact.

We are proud to have partnered with several such organisations, including TrustLaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono legal programme, Sidley Austin under the Sidley Emerging Enterprises Pro Bono Program, and Advocates for International Development (A4ID), a global charity that works in partnership with the world’s leading law firms to provide free access to legal advice for non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Through these partnerships, our firm has had the opportunity to provide quality legal services and to help organisations and social enterprises achieve their social mission for free. We are constantly taking on new projects and welcome opportunities where our services can be of maximum benefit and confer meaningful social impact.
