Pro Bono Practice Group
For over a decade, Webber Wentzel’s Pro Bono Practice has provided free legal services to various organisations and communities. The establishment of this Practice, headed by two partners, demonstrates our determination to provide our clients and the wider public with the highest level of legal expertise, combined with social sensitivity and responsibility.
