WHAT WE DO
We develop projects focused on strengthening the rule of law and human rights for the most vulnerable segments of the population, involving the legal profession. We work locally and globally with transformative projects such as the “Tokens Pombo”, combining innovation and legal excellence to make a greater social impact.

We try to find and propose new legal solutions and responses to promote and protect the rights of forced migrants.
RESPONSIBLE LEGAL PRACTICE
We strive to turn the concept of “Responsible legal practice” into a reality, by shifting the perspective of today’s legal professionals and training tomorrow’s leading lawyers, so that they can be key players in social transformation.
Pro Bono culture and good practices
Pro bono is a fundamental tool of a “Responsible Legal practice” and it is therefore why we have created the first pro bono coordination centre (clearinghouse) in Spain.
Companies and human rights
We carry out research and work with business advocacy in its role in preventing, protecting and remedying the impact that companies have on human rights.
Rule of Law y Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible
Trabajamos para fortalecer el Imperio de la ley y la contribución de la abogacía en los ODS.
Awareness and understanding of the challenges facing the legal profession and human rights in the digital era, as well as making the most of new technologies in order to move towards the fulfilment of our goals, is key in our work.
This is a ground-breaking initiative in the legal sector aimed at promoting our projects geared towards vulnerable populations, by forming a network of pro bono lawyers from Gómez-Acebo & Pombo and the use of blockchain in order to endow our projects with greater transparency and traceability.
