Where we are from helps to define us and the way we work, shaping our future plans and what we can offer an international market.
Enabling the communities in which we live and work to flourish is a vital part of conducting our business. The support we give to staff to carry out mentoring, charity fundraising and voluntary work in their communities is not just testament to their selflessness, but it is something which we celebrate and encourage as a firm.
Amongst our nine offices, we have raised in excess of £1.5 million over the past decade for our chosen charities as well as donating many hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of fee-earner time and support.
The principle of giving something back extends beyond charity or voluntary involvement. We are immensely proud of our home cities and what they have brought to the world which is why we are patrons of local business and professional organisations. We are also actively committed to reducing our carbon footprint and working with clients to help reduce theirs; an approach that again has come directly from our people.
