We believe that we have a clear obligation and responsibility to serve the wider community’s needs. By doing so we fulfil the core values of our organisation and offer staff a sense of involvement and engagement with the community.
Our Charity of the Year
The firm’s Charity of the Year is Young Women’s Trust, the only registered UK charity focused solely on supporting disadvantaged young women aged 16-30 who are facing poverty, discrimination and marginalisation. It offers free coaching and personalised advice on job applications, conducts research, runs campaigns and works with young women to build confidence and advocate for fair financial futures. The firm proudly supports Young Women’s Trust through volunteering, participating in challenge events and fundraising within the office.
We have established a professional network called Higher which elevates women and champions equality in the workplace. Driven by a diverse internal committee, Higher supports women (both inside the firm and within our network of clients and contacts) in excelling in their careers.
First 100 Years
The First 100 Years is a ground-breaking history project, supported by the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx, charting the journey of women in law since 1919. The project is powered by Spark21, a charity founded to celebrate, inform and inspire future generation of women in the profession.
A number of our lawyers provide free legal advice to members of the community who would otherwise be without legal assistance. At local law centres, evening clinics and the Citizens Advice Bureau, advice is given on housing, employment and family law problems.
Several lawyers also supervise BPP Law School students in their community legal advice clinics.
