Corporate Responsibility (CR).

Our CR strategy is underpinned by our Principles and has three main strands –people, community and the environment.

Our people strategy looks inwardly at our responsibilities to our employees, particularly with regard to the critical themes of development and diversity.

Our community strategy embraces not only our charitable and volunteering initiatives but also our pro bono activity. Three themes lie at its heart – increasing access to justice, access to finance and access to education.

Our environment strategy recognises the impact our business has on the environment, as well as ensures we stand up to the scrutiny of our clients, whom we often advise on such matters.

The targets we have set are ambitious and pretty tough to achieve in what are challenging economic times – but that’s no bad thing. It’s only through stretching ourselves that we are able to achieve success in our quest.
