The principle of social responsibility has been and remains a guiding principle of our firm. At Maxima Legal we think about those who need our help and we give consideration not only to the commercial, but also to social projects and ventures.
Maxima Legal provides charitable assistance to the following organizations:
The Foundation is engaged in the spiritual and educational work with the persons with disabilities, orphans and children left without parental care in orphanage, boarding schools, and children's homes. The Foundation's mission is to give warmth, love and care to the orphans and abandoned children, disabled or sick children or children in need.
At the boarding school the children educate are from large families, disadvantaged homes (often due to drug addiction or alcoholism) or children left without parental care.
The purpose of this independent institution is to provide a social service for senior citizens and those with disabilities who may be suffering from the mental and chronic conditions requiring the constant nursing care.
Our firm's social responsibility includes providing legal assistance with reduced fees or on free of charge basis (pro bono):
- In the summer of 2013, the lawyers of Maxima Legal defended the interests of Yury Shevchuk, the singer of DDT group in the resonant “case of honor” against Nikolai Denin, the Governor of the Bryansk region. We were able to prove the injustice of the charges brought against the singer and defend his right to express his own public stand.
- A long-term partnership connects the team of Maxima Legal with St. Petersburg Academic Philharmonic named after Shostakovich . While recognizing its invaluable contribution to national cultural heritage, lawyers of Maxima Legal are providing support to the oldest Russian Philharmonic on a reduced fees basis.
