Corporate Social Responsibility

Supporting the wider community

While delivering an incredible service to our clients is our primary goal, we are also committed to helping charities, the wider community and the environment.

Throughout our long and illustrious history, we are proud to have supported many local, national and international causes through our work and fundraising.

The cause closest to our heart is Larchfield – a children’s charity based in Tanzania that offers a secure refuge for young children whose families have been dislocated and destroyed by HIV – which we have supported significantly for over more than a decade.

Larchfield offers a home to up to 50 children in Africa, whose lives have been afflicted by HIV, and so each year we sponsor many children and participate in various fundraising events, including:

  • A London to Paris bike ride
  • Countless marathons and walks
  • Various events throughout our office

We also hold regular bake-offs, tuck shops and dress-down days to help raise money for other causes every year.

Beyond our work with Larchfield and other charities, our team have:

  • Sat as trustees for charities, such as the Antisemitism Policy Trust and the Iris Theatre at St Paul’s Church
  • Acted as honorary legal advisor to the Citizens Advice Bureau
  • Climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for FutureSense
  • Participate in RideLondon 100 for Epilepsy UK
  • Undertaken various pro-bono work for those most in need of legal advice.
  • Ran the London Parks Half-Marathon to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity
  • A team of 5 members of Mackrell completed the London to Brighton cycle ride raising money for Alzheimer’s Research UK

We strongly encourage all of our staff members to participate in these events, as we place a great deal of value on being a responsible and caring law firm.

Going Green

The firm actively encourages employees to cycle to work and offers the facilities that allow them to do so.

We have also abolished plastic cups from the office and recycle all of our cardboard and paper, while our printers are configured to reduce paper usage.

Due to the nature of our work – going paperless is not always possible, but all departments are strongly encouraged to file information digitally where possible.

The future

We are constantly looking for new ways to assist charities and community groups, while also taking additional steps to reduce waste and our overall impact on the environment.
