CSR & Community Projects
Investing in our future
We take seriously our role as a corporate citizen in the communities that we practise in. Our policy is to promote positive development in education, literacy, sports and the arts, while running our firm with due consideration for the environment at all times.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We are working hard to minimise the impact that we have on the environment. We have invested in the latest IT solutions including video conferencing and secure data transfer in order to reduce our carbon footprint and all of our lawyers and support staff throughout the world consider the impact of their daily business.
Work in the community has always been part of the culture of our firm. Our involvement in the community provides an opportunity for all our staff to undertake voluntary activities, whilst at the same time helping with the recruitment, motivation and personal development of our people.
Our community projects include a wide range of sponsorships covering local libraries and art galleries to rugby teams and Olympic and Commonwealth hopefuls. Our charitable donations, many made through the Maples Foundation, have covered diverse causes including Cystic Fybrosis, the prevention of child abuse and many local charities.
We also believe that investment in the community can have a profound impact when spent locally. Our programme of investment in local communities has strengthened our relationships with our clients through collaborative efforts and has shown that we are acting responsibly in relation to the communities in which we exist. More than anything, we invest in the community because we believe it is the right thing to do.
We are an entrepreneurial, innovative firm guided by our core values.
