Each of our 18 offices operates an environmental awareness and responsibility programme.
Measures adopted include:
- Energy reviews to identify opportunities to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions
- Waste management strategies to promote waste minimisation and recycling
- Increased sustainable product sourcing
- Technological alternatives to travel
We work with our suppliers and contractors to ensure they meet our commitment to environmental awareness and responsibility.
Responsibilitites as an Employer

"We are committed to supporting lawyers who want to be of service"
We are dedicated to offering pro bono opportunities to all our lawyers in every office. Our multi-jurisdictional practice uniquely qualifies us to address pro bono matters around the world, whether at a San Francisco legal clinic or in Tanzania at the Office of the Prosecutor at the
International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR).
Pro Bono Council
Our full-time Pro Bono Counsel and associated staff work exclusively on directing our pro bono efforts and assists in effectively matching the interests of our lawyers with the needs of individual clients and non-profit organisations.
In the London office, trainees and associates regularly participate in a weekly reading scheme at a local primary school. A strong relationship has been built up with the school over recent years, and the scheme has proved a very worthwhile commitment for those involved.
