Pro Bono > International Development

Akin Gump lawyers regularly advise governments and small enterprises in developing nations as part of our pro bono practice.  For instance, we have worked with the Government of Liberia to negotiate a palm oil concession with a multinational energy company.  We assisted a small mobile banking company restructure so it could serve customers in Sub-Saharan Africa.  Our lawyers also advise micro-lenders to help get needed capital to small enterprises in Latin and South America.
