Blas de Lezo Abogados runs a PRO-BONO service, able to offer legal assistance before any Court or Tribunal or Mediator in Spain (i.e. whether in relation to litigation or arbitration or mediation) to all those within or finding themselves involved with the shipping industry and who may not be able to cope with the financial costs of such services as provided on a normal basis.

Our PRO-BONO Department offers support, guidance, resources and inspiration to those in need, thus promoting effective legal solutions among the most disadvantaged social groups.

The members of our team give their time for free and provide excellent professional service to community groups in the maritime industry. Quite often we witness stowaways, seafarers abandoned in foreign harbours, women shipped against their will to unknown destinations, etc. They need legal advice and we can often be of assistance.

Our firm also offers free mediation services in those cases where public free access to justice is not available or where the circumstances of the particular case suggest the recommendation and use of those free mediation services.

The firm guarantees that its PRO-BONO service is provided at the same high level of excellence and professionalism as the regular legal service provided to all our clients. If you think our PRO-BONO service might be of assistance to you, please feel free to contact our Managing Partner (who – as he considers this service is very important – is also our PRO-BONO Manager) to discuss your case.

PRO-BONO Manager: Miquel Roca.
