Introducing our association with Power Singh Inc.
Developing the private-public interest law model
ALT Advisory, in association with Power Singh Inc., seeks to self-fund public interest projects and litigation and develop the private-public interest law model to facilitate access to justice and legal services in South Africa, and on the African continent.
The model is premised on an understanding that there are constraints on donor funding for traditional public interest law organisations and that new funding mechanisms for strategic and test case litigation are needed.
In developing the private-public law firm model, ALT Advisory, which is managed by the same Directors as Power Singh Inc., contributes a large percentage of its annual profits to funding public interest projects and litigation within Power Singh Inc.
