With a large number of offices around the world, and many competing demands, priorities can differ greatly among communities and regions. For that reason, our community program balances our strategic global and regional initiatives with local office-based community committees, who are best placed to respond to the priorities of the communities in which they live and work. But whether we’re supporting a charity through fundraising, or providing mentoring opportunities for underrepresented young people, we offer multiple ways to facilitate and support the relationships our people develop with community partners.
Our community partnerships are driven by relationships. Across the Herbert Smith Freehills network, our people have many opportunities to actively engage with community organisations that promote access to justice and social inclusion.
In the same way that we respond to any client, we listen to and respect what our NGO partners tell us about the needs of the communities they serve. They are the experts. We support them using the resources of a global law firm.
