Community

A central part of our commitment to be energetic for change, is investing in the future of New Zealand’s communities - helping them to grow and thrive.

Our pro bono partner, Shan Wilson, leads and implements our efforts to deliver practical, hands on support for people and organisations, helping to make a positive difference.


Pro bono practice

We recognise some people and groups within the community face difficulties accessing legal advice. Our pro bono practice, led by Shan Wilson, assists disadvantaged and low-income members of the community, through the organisations that support them, to gain access to legal advice and justice.

A number of our staff attend the Auckland and Wellington Community Legal Centres each year (since 2013), to assist with the provision of legal advice.

Community partnerships

Our Community Report highlights the great community organisations we work with. The particular focus of our volunteer activity and charitable contributions is for organisations working with youth and helping them develop their full potential. We are proud to have long-term partnerships with several organisations, including:

Youthline (since 2004) assisting with their mission to foster leadership and personal skills in young people
Orakei School (Since 2003) weekly mentoring programme for Year 8 students
Waikato-Tainui (since 2018) annual scholarship supporting tribal members studying law
Tupu Toa (since 2016) supporting Māori & Pasifika graduates to fulfil their corporate career aspirations


Environment

Our climate change practice is a leader in providing commercially-sound legal advice on climate change matters and the business impacts of transitioning towards a low carbon future.

We apply the same principles to our day-to-day activities, continually looking for practical ways to reduce our environmental impact. It’s an ongoing focus and we are currently working towards carbon zero accreditation in 2020.
