We pay it forward because we are grateful
for how much we have received
The Harmodio Arias Madrid Pro Bono and CSR Committee, named after one of ARIFA's founding partners and former President of Panama, is comprised of lawyers from all levels and top administration personnel.
ARIFA pro bono commitment leads its members to provide free legal advice for the benefit of those non-profit organizations that have a positive impact on the community. By providing pro bono services ARIFA reinforces the firm’s professional integrity and strong ethical values, which are attributes highly prized by all of its members, clients and by the associations to which they belong.
The Committee provides clear pro bono guidelines, and has the mission to efficiently keep track of the pro bono work its lawyers provide.
ARIFA is member of the Lex Mundi Pro bono Foundation and signatory of the Pro Bono Declaration of the Americas, promoted by the Vance Center, an international organization that advances global justice by engaging lawyers across borders to support civil society and an ethically active legal profession.
