When you join Taylor Wessing, there are plenty of opportunities alongside your day-to-day role to get involved in wider initiatives that give back to society. Below, you can read about the pro bono work the firm takes part in, as well as their commitment to the environment and how you can be part of the change.
Pro bono initiatives
Being involved in pro bono work gives us the opportunity to help those who would otherwise not be able to gain access to justice.
It’s something we encourage everyone to do. It helps us take a step back from our complex international transactions and witness the impact the law has on the lives of people in our local community.
We support numerous individuals and organisations each year including the Mary Ward Legal Advice Centre where we provide weekly advice which all of our trainees are involved in, Founding firm of Lawyers Volunteering for the Arts and the British Fashion Council. Additionally, we are panel members of the Human Dignity Trust.
Our climate is in crisis. We must act now to cut greenhouse gas emissions and remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 'Acting sustainably, together' outlines our journey to becoming net zero by 2030. Our people, teamwork and clients are fundamental to achieving this goal. We're advocating for the use of technology to accelerate decarbonisation.
Stage one is to be carbon neutral in our operations by 2023. That means reducing emissions within our direct control and responsibly offsetting those we can't. Being net zero is more challenging, meaning eliminating or offsetting emissions produced as a result of all our business activities, including our supply chain. We're determined to achieve our goal and as a trainee you can drive change through involvement in our sustainability network. We've been passionate about sustainability for many years.
