MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR TOMORROW
Allen & Gledhill’s pro bono programme (the “Programme”) was formally set up in 2008 to fill a gap in pro bono services. Leveraging off our Firm’s expertise and experience in corporate as well as charity law and governance, the Programme focuses on helping charities to navigate legal and regulatory issues.
The programme is managed by a dedicated team of committed lawyers who focuses on providing pro bono advice to charitable and non-profit organisations on agreements, regulations, corporate and charity law and governance, amongst others. The Programme is headed on a full time basis by our Partner Lim Lei Theng who is also Head of our Firm's Knowledge Management department. It has involved over 200 of our lawyers since its launch in 2008. Our Pro Bono programme is also supported by our Consultant Chan Hian Young.

Our Firm contributes to a wide range of charitable causes, ranging from supporting needy school children to caring for the disabled
or elderly. We actively participate in various charity events.
We place strong emphasis in grooming lawyers of the future, and are committed to thought leadership and contributing to the legal community. As part of our knowledge sharing efforts, we sponsor a number of legal and professional events, teach at law schools and legal institutes (namely, the National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University and Singapore Institute of Legal Education), author articles that appears in a range of legal and professional publications, and undertake a variety of speaking engagements with legal and professional organisations (which includes the Law Society of Singapore, the Singapore Academy of Law, the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the Institute of Banking & Finance, the International Bar Association and the Inter- Pacific Bar Association).
Our Firm holds volunteering and fund-raising events every year. We believe it is essential for our lawyers and staff to have the opportunities to support and care for the members of our community, particularly those who are less fortunate, have special needs or who are differently abled, be it through fund raising or contributing directly in an activity involving a particular charitable group.
