Who we are and how we work

As a Responsible Business, we do not operate in isolation. Our strategic decision making is informed by the expectations of our clients, our community and NGO clients, our employees and stakeholders in wider society.

The most important issue for all of our stakeholders, internal and external, is the firm's integrity in how we operate our core business: how we service and manage our client relationships, our processes for managing risk, and the ethical standards to which we hold ourselves as an organisation. These are critical to our reputation and at the heart of our continued licence to operate.

Inclusion, diversity and people development are valued highly by our stakeholders. We continue to prioritise these issues, alongside the physical and mental wellbeing of our teams.

Our people value the contribution they can personally make to supporting their communities. Our readiness and ability to contribute our time, energy, expertise and financial support to pro bono and community outreach projects is also important to our external stakeholders.

Responsible Business Report

As we try to build a better, more sustainable future, it is the fundamental principles of the law that guide us, as a responsible business: equality and fairness, access to justice, effective regulation and government, and the promotion and protection of human rights.

Our 2020 report demonstrates our commitment to sustainable growth and how it has endured and been strengthened during a period of uncertainty and change.
