Doctors Without Borders
Every year, we provide our main CSR partner, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), with both legal pro bono services and financial support. MSF is a neutral and independent medical aid organisation which saves lives and alleviates suffering in more than seventy countries each year. Thommessen has an ambassador group of committed lawyers who assist MSF with legal advice. Several ambassador group members have deepened their acquaintance with MSF by visiting its Brussels headquarters. Thommessen representatives have also accompanied MSF to Lebanon to observe its essential work at close quarters.
The Norwegian Women's Football Association
From January 2020 Thommessen is official partner of the Norwegian Women's Football Association. We want to take part in developing Norwegian women's football, especially linked to increased professionalization and competence enhancement. At Thommessen we are committed to highlighting female talents - both in the legal profession and in football. The agreement allows the Norwegian Women's Football Association to access a learning tool for football players based on VR technology, provided by Be Your Best.
#ShesGotThis is an NGO addressing gender stereotypes and unconscious bias. Thommessen is one of its founding partners, and we have assisted #ShesGotThis on a range of legal issues in its start-up phase. The organisation also serves as a key advisor in our efforts to increase our proportion of female senior lawyers and partners.
Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation
We support social entrepreneurship through Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation. Lex Mundi is a global network of leading independent law firms, with Thommessen as its exclusive Norwegian member.
