Clifford Chance

Community & pro bono

Responsible Business

Community sits at the heart of our firm. We partner to support our community by widening access to justice, finance and education. 

Our global community outreach and pro bono strategy focuses on providing the best possible support to our NGO and charity clients, whilst at the same time expanding the capabilities of our people and strengthening relationships, partnership and collaboration. Our initiatives provide all of our people, at all levels, with opportunities to practise and enhance the skills that are key to their development, making them more effective and well-rounded.

One way we measure the impact of this commitment is by setting ourselves an annual target of helping 100,000 people a year. We have a varied programme of community and pro bono activities, which focus on access to justice, access to education and access to finance.

Our clients range from local community-based organisations to global NGOs, with whom we have developed long-term, strategic relationships. We collaborate with leading businesses who share our values to enhance the support we offer. For more information about our partnerships with clients and NGOs, please visit our page on partnering to support communities.

As well as volunteering our time and services, we provide financial support to charities through the Clifford Chance Foundation.

We set strategic community and pro bono objectives, which we report on annually as part of our Responsible Business reporting.
