Our approach to CSR takes three strands: community engagement, charitable giving, and environmental action.
Supporting the communities in which we work includes employee volunteering at local schools and care homes, as well as clothing, food, toy and blood donation drives. In addition, many of our lawyers regard pro bono work as an integral part of being a member of the legal profession.
We also give back to the broader legal community through our participation in the International Lawyers for Africa (ILFA) programme, which aims to build legal excellence and promote the rule of law in Africa by providing access to advanced legal training, networking opportunities and education for African lawyers. While employees across the globe raise donations for various causes, the main thrust of our charitable giving goes towards our charity of the year which is selected by employees.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and adopting sustainable practices, and support activities which reduce the impact of climate change. These practices include recycling and efficient energy use throughout our offices globally.
