2018

"There is a good amount of pro bono work at the firm and projects range from legal advice on housing issues, to death row cases, to helping charities with their corporate work such as board resolutions and incorporations."
First year trainee, London
"Every lawyer must complete at least 20 hours of pro bono a year and most do much more. We have a whole week in June to celebrate our pro bono achievements and community contributions. We also work with a local school where staff can volunteer on a rotating basis. Charity and pro bono work is encouraged and supported."
Second year trainee, London
"We have compulsory targets to meet and you can get involved in as much as you want."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has an absolute commitment to pro bono. It is mandatory to reach certain targets each year and all pro bono work counts as billable hours. Again, this is unique when compared to many other firms."
First year trainee, London
"I've worked on a variety of pro bono projects. I recently acted for a group of residents who fear their social housing estate could be knocked down."
Second year trainee, London
"Every fee earner at the firm must do 20 hours of pro bono work per year as a minimum. Last year, I believe every fee earner across the entire firm met this target and many exceeded it. A lot of the pro bono work undertaken is in relation to charities and death row appeal cases, but there is a very broad variety of work on offer."
