sought legal advice to ensure compliance with common bylaws and guidelines.
Resource-efficient specialisation
According to Lars Mygind Bojsen, Plesner is still in a position to accept more pro bono work. But in the long term an increasing amount of work will make it necessary to decentralise the organisation of such work. Dividing responsibility among more people internally at Plesner may turn out to be the way to further optimise the internal process- es in relation to free legal advice.
"The seeds for an additional development
of our internal organisation of the pro bono work have already been sown. Make-a-Wish Denmark is a good example. Since the start
of the collaboration in 2015, the organisation has received assistance writing and target-
ing applications at charitable foundations to ensure donations for the benefit of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The daily responsibility is placed with two assistant attorneys who, together with dedicated law students, are specialised in precisely this type of work and are in regular, direct contact with the organisation. The collaboration is more efficient and is a fine example of how decen- tralisation and specialisation save time and resources for all the involved parties."
Positive circle
There is still a great difference as to how much the individual organisations consult Plesner. Through regular contact we will help and advise the charitable organisations define even more types of work in respect of which Plesner can provide relevant legal assistance in the future.
"The more the charitable organisations use us, the better we get to know them, and the more targeted and specialised assistance will we be able to provide. Increased interaction creates a positive circle that makes us more efficient in terms of our problem solving, and the individ- ual organisation will to a higher extent receive the necessary assistance supplementary to
its own efforts," emphasises Lars Mygind Bojesen.
