"We educated, privileged lawyers have a professional and moral duty to represent the
underrepresented in our society, to ensure that justice exists for all, both legal and economic justice" ---
At Pundit Advocates, there is a deliberate policy to make legal services available to all. This policy is rooted in our belief that as a law firm, the most useful contribution we can make to the society is to use our knowledge and expertise to make meaningful impact on the lives of the less privileged, the ignorant, by bridging the gap in access to rights, services and justice.
While serving the needs of indigent individuals and not- for-profit organisations with limited or no access to legal services in a wide range of matters, the pro bono experience connects us to the communities in which we work. Our commitment to pro bono legal service is deep and longstanding, and we take on a number of pro bono matters each year.
Our Firm is constantly encouraged to participate in pro bono activities early in their careers, and we also support our lawyers who volunteer for pro bono work that falls outside of their particular practice areas. All pro bono work that the firm undertakes is handled like any other billable matters, with the dedication of all available firm resources appropriate to the needs of the representation.
Finally, as a law firm we are fully committed to continually striving to broaden legal service in our various host communities. This responsibility and commitment set us apart from our competitors who do not have such programme in place. In order to sufficiently render our legal services gratis to our society, we have partnered with the following organisations: -Lagos Public Interest Law Partnership (LPILP), -Justice for All (J4A) Department for International Development (DFID) and -The Lagos Multi-door Court House (LMDC)
