Pro Bono Cases
Many of our pro bono clients are long-standing partners of ours, such as UNICEF.
The firm accepts several hands-on projects from UNICEF in which numerous employees of the firm do active pro bono work for the children of the world through UNICEF. The firm is engaged in the administration of the National Committee for UNICEF and participated in the three-person working group representing the members of the boards of 36 National Committees for UNICEF negotiating a new global cooperation agreement between the National Committees and UNICEF, organ of the United Nations.

Centrum För Rättvisa
Centrum för rättvisa was established in 2002 and is a non-profit and independent actor with the task of protecting individual freedom rights, and it is currently Sweden's leading organisation in this area.
Centrum för rättvisa is based on a clear mission: Respect for individual rights and freedoms is the core of a democratic rule of law and a modern society. Centrum för rättvisa handles cases that are often not tried because of the victim lacking knowledge of their rights or the financial resources required to claim them. Centrum för rättvisa represents clients against powerful counterparts, and it does not charge for its services.
Hannes Snellman (Stockholm) continuously provides advice to the organisation.
