Corporate social responsibility
At Slater and Gordon we recognise that we have an economic, environmental and social impact that goes beyond our core activity.
As a firm we value inspiration, innovation and individual contributions. We treat our clients, and each other, with mutual respect and trust. We bring this approach to our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme and aim to ensure all our people have the opportunity to get involved to help them develop to their full potential and be responsible citizens.
Our CSR programme has three key areas:
- Pro bono
Our lawyers undertake a wide range of pro bono (i.e. free) legal advice as part of their commitment to the wider community and desire to extend people’s access to justice. This ranges from sorting leases for local parish councils to working on legal advice lines and taking on pro bono cases for individuals in need of expert legal assistance.
As a firm dedicated to upholding the legal rights of individuals, we strive to use our skills and expertise to support others in our community. Our community programme supports organisations that promote access to justice and social inclusion and those providing vital services to some of the people we have helped with our legal work.
We constantly strive to help reduce our impact on the environment. We always aim to be proactive in cutting our consumption rather than just reacting to legislation.
