We are passionate about human rights. Our entire team works pro bono in the field of human and civil rights. We address equality issues, particularly the rights of LGBT+ persons in Poland, the crisis of the rule of law in Poland, and access to public information. Our firm participates in the Pro Bono for Equality program (Poro Bono dla Równości) run by the Polish Society of Anti-Discrimination Law.
