BNM Advocates joined TrustLaw, the world’s largest pro bono service, in 2017 after I personally stumbled into their offices while going to meet another firm in the same building. What strikes me most about BNM was how engaging they were when the topic of pro bono was raised – particularly Advocate Brendah Mpanga – who passionately spoke about looking for an opportunity to give back as a firm to the society in Uganda. Since then, BNM has gone on to exceed all expectations, taking up pro bono projects at its own will without having to be requested, making a massive difference for our NGOs and social enterprises. Though respectable as a commercial firm, BNM has shown that it values and prioritises giving back to the communities within Uganda using its legal knowledge, something not many firms can attest to.
