CSR | Pro Bono
At Wolf Theiss we believe that success is a two-way street. Our financial success depends in large part on our doing quality work for our clients, so they come back to us and recommend us to others. But our success also depends on the support of the local communities where we live and work. They provide us with many things, including the talented lawyers and assistants who make it possible for us to do what we do. We all think it is essential that we give something back to the community.
The people at Wolf Theiss make contributions to their communities in their own ways. As a firm, we show our commitment in a number of different ways:
Pro bono legal work
One way is by providing legal advice on a pro bono basis to clients who need legal help but are unable to pay for our services. Our pro bono work is directed at clients whom we consider to be very deserving or who face legal issues that we believe are especially important to our communities or to society as a whole.

In addition to donating our services, we sometimes make cash donations to help local charities or foundations. We try to pick charities where the need is great and the resources are stretched.
Wolf Theiss cares what happens in the countries where we do business not only from a legal view, but also from a charitable one. That is why the Wolf Theiss partners are committed to making substantial donations to public NGOs who are spearheading projects that are improving the quality of life for people living in the CEE/SEE region and elsewhere. Below are the charities we have chosen to support.
