Corporate Social Responsibility
We are committed to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and aim to have a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work and to the environment around us through a combination of pro bono legal advice, community action and charitable giving.
Our charitable activities
Each year the firm appoints a “charity of the year” which becomes the focus of the firm’s fundraising and sponsorship activities and our charity committee (consisting of staff from across the firm) develops various initiatives throughout the year in which all members of staff are encouraged to participate. This year, the chosen charity is Mind.
Additionally, we support City Solicitors Horizons which is a pilot social mobility initiative to improve access to the legal profession for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. In-house we provide vacation placements to law students who have are finding it challenging to access work experience.
We also fundraise for and support the work of the London Legal Support Trust, providing much needed resources to London’s voluntary legal advice centres.
Jennifer Chambers has overall responsibility for our CSR activities.
