Commitment to Action

Legal Services for Commitments

Commitment by

Mestel & Company, HIRECounsel

The planning and implementation of a number of CGI's commitments will entail some kind of legal support, being it simple advice or actual legal work. These commitments currently have to use outside law firms, or possibly their own in-house counsel, which adds significant cost to their respective budgets. In 2006, Mestel & Company and HIRECounsel committed to help eliminate these costs and concentrate the expenditures of CGI Commitments in actual substantive work through introducing committing entities in need of legal support to the pro bono department of an appropriate law firm.
As of March 2007, this program was providing legal counsel to two CGI commitments, negotiating pro bono services from two additional law firms, and planning outreach to other commitments to promote this pro bono opportunity.
