Chambers Europe has nominated Raue for the Chambers Europe Awards 2021 in the category “Outstanding Law Firm for Pro Bono” for its long-standing and sustained pro bono commitment.
Raue joins renowned international law firms honored by Chambers on its pro bono shortlist: A&L Goodbody, Dentons. Herbert Smith Freehills LLP, Flichy Grangé Avocats, Havel & Partners, Hogan Lovells LLP, Paksoy, Uría Menéndez and White & Case LLP.
The shortlist is based on the Chambers Diversity & Inclusion team’s research and will be co-judged by the Chambers D&I team and Chambers Europe Editor.
“We are very pleased and also a little proud to have been nominated by Chambers at European level for our pro bono services,” says Friedrich Tobias Schöne, Raue partner responsible for coordinating pro bono activities across the firm, adding “Pro bono work has always been an integral part of our consultancy. Our professional attitude as attorneys is underpinned by our willingness to give back to our communities and we foster the pro-bono activities our attorneys pursue.”
Raue encourages its partners and associates to use their skills for the common good and to help individuals in particular need of assistance, also without remuneration, as was recently the case in advising the Silbernetz association. This means that wherever Raue lawyers serve a client pro bono, the work will meet the same high standards that apply to any other services Raue provides. The lawyers at Raue are willing to lend support to those in need who would otherwise not be able to afford adequate legal advice, and where they are convinced that their work will contribute to the good of the community. Raue is a founding member of Pro Bono Deutschland e.V., the first German association of leading corporate law firms promoting pro-bono legal advice and encouraging attorneys to volunteer their services (Raue Pro Bono).
The Chambers Europe Awards 2021 will be presented by Chambers and Partners on Thursday, April 22, 2021 and will be held virtually this year. Chambers and Partners, one of the leading international lawyers directories, provide detailed rankings and insights for over 200 jurisdictions worldwide.
