ABSTRACT
The article reports that several of the world's largest law firms have responded overwhelmingly to an appeal from the Solicitors Pro Bono Group (SPBG) to help families and businesses hit by the Asian tsunami. SPBG chief executive Susan Bucknall sent a general appeal out to the group's database of firms after the giant wave hit on Boxing Day. She said the response had been "excellent". As well as more than 50 individual lawyers who have pledged their services to the SPBG, 12 law firms have offered to help the group in its efforts.
