Charter signatories

The signatories below believe that by being a signatory to the Pro Bono Charter, their law firm or organisation is demonstrating its commitment to improving access to justice for those individuals and organisations who have legal needs and are ineligible for legal aid and unable to afford to pay for legal services.


Pro bono work is a great way of making a real contribution to the communities in which our people and their families live and work, and this is why we are proud to be a Pro Bono Charter founding signatory. Society benefits, the reputation of the legal profession is strengthened, our people value it and the firm is stronger as a result of it.
