equality & CSR
We think itís important to be conscious of our social and environmental responsibilities.
As important as our commitment to practising law to the highest standard, we believe that we need to consider how running our business impacts on the local community, the environment and wider social communities in the purchasing chain. We also feel that itís important to put something back by contributing our skills, knowledge and ideas into charitable projects.
Supporting our community and charities
We try to achieve this by working with charities that support local communities in which we operate. We also support other charities that our firm has a long-standing connection to. We actively encourage and support participation in a range of fundraising activities including sponsored bike-rides and quiz nights.
We support the work of:
Henshaws Society for Blind People
Helping Uganda Schools
Ethical purchasing of goods and services
We try to make informed choices about our purchase of goods and services. Where possible, we consider the ethical policies of our suppliers alongside cost factors. We also encourage an environmentally-aware attitude to the firmís consumption of goods and services.
We support equal opportunity in the workplace. We strive to create an environment free from all forms of discrimination so that each member of staff can reach their full potential
