Our social and environmental responsibility
runs deeper than our clients and employees.
Our formal pro bono and corporate social responsibility (CSR) program is an opportunity for us to genuinely give back to our local and global community in the best way we can; providing legal support to enable a voice.
Many of the organisations we support to provide services to marginalised, disadvantaged and vulnerable people.
Through our pro bono program, we take a flexible and responsive approach that includes:
volunteering at law centres in our catchment areas, accepting a referral from those centres concerning a broad range of legal matters;
providing pro bono legal services to our partner organisations as and when required;
participating in the fundraising efforts of our partner organisations;
providing pro bono legal assistance to the disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our communities directly; and
employees are serving as board members of charitable and community organisations.
Our staff value the opportunity to be involved with pro bono initiatives that make a difference, which is why we are proudly involved with the following organisations:
Community Legal Centres
We are proud to be involved with the following community legal centres:
Redfern Legal Centre
The RLC is the first community legal centre established in New South Wales, providing free and confidential legal advice and casework, delivering community legal education, and engaging in law reform.

The EDO NSW is a community legal centre specialising in environmental and planning law.
We have ongoing partnerships with a range of charitable organisations and have recently assisted the following organisations:
