“PILnet made sure that, as a not-for-profit organization, we were able to fully take advantage of resources and advice available to us in important matters. The pro bono attorneys they connected us with were similarly responsive and knowledgeable about the relevant subject matter. We have, and will continue to, recommend PILnet to similarly-situated organizations.”
PILnet’s Global Clearinghouse obtained critical pro bono support for the German organization Human Rights Matter, which protects human rights defenders in Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. Human Rights Matter needed assistance determining its compliance with German labor and tax laws, which is just the kind of expertise that most small organizations lack but can helpfully be provided by pro bono lawyers. That kind of help helps organization’s health and functioning, allowing them to focus on carrying out their important mission. PILnet quickly sourced pro bono lawyers with the capacity and commitment to help. Thanks to PILnet, Human Rights Matter was successfully registered in Berlin, and with the help of a second law firm advising it on ongoing compliance with German regulations, Human Rights Matter is protecting those who risk their lives to defend human rights principles.
