GQM has assumed pro bono work as part of the professional integrity of its lawyers, so that persons and vulnerable sectors, and the organizations and institutions who it assists, can access quality legal services and counsel.
For these reasons, GQM has signed the Pro Bono Declaration for the Americas (Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice).
GQM is an active member of the Pro Bono Foundation, whose object is to promote, organize, intermediate and publish the practice of pro bono between its lawyers and their participation in public debates, to improve access to justice for vulnerable persons, sectors or groups.
In turn, GQM actively participates in the legal assistance of corporations and civic, cultural, environmental and education that serve the public interest, including:
