Peters & Peters undertake a variety of pro bono work in-house.
Many of our lawyers regularly volunteer at the Citizens Advice Bureau at the Royal Courts of Justice. They give one to one practical advice to litigants in person who are faced with the daunting prospect of court proceedings.
We have undertaken training projects on evidence gathering, corporate ethical responsibility and compliance in conjunction with A4ID. We are currently acting for a former senior employee of an anti-corruption NGO who is being prosecuted in another country in relation to anti-corruption investigations.
Peters & Peters acted for JUSTICE, an independent human rights and law reform organisation, on an intervention to the Supreme Court in an extradition appeal. The Supreme Court handed down its decision on 20 June 2012, holding that it is possible that the Article 8 rights of children could prevent the extradition of a parent in some circumstances. JUSTICE’s intervention in the appeal to the Supreme Court was described in the judgment as ‘valuable’ and related to the protection of the ECHR Article 8 rights of the children of requested persons facing extradition
Peters & Peters has also provided pro bono assistance via Fair Trials International through Notes of Advice.
