Quality and consistency through collaboration

Sparke Helmore Lawyers is committed to socially responsible business practices, which includes having a positive impact on the communities in which we operate. We are proud to be part of a broader legal community that continues to invest significantly in pro bono activities for the public good.

The last year has been a very positive one for our Pro Bono Practice and Community Program. We’re delighted to share our latest social sustainability report—In Kind—a short report that provides a snapshot of the pro bono legal work and community activities our people have engaged in during the 2020/2021 financial year. Having once again met and exceeded the National Pro Bono Target, we provided 15,659 hours of pro bono legal work for individuals experiencing disadvantage and charitable organisations.

Partner Nick Christiansen who leads our Pro Bono Practice says, “going forward, we will continue to collaborate with clients on our pro bono and community initiatives in order to increase our collective impact.”

Sparke Helmore's Pro Bono Practice and Community Program are part of the firm's ongoing commitment to providing legal services that make a real difference.

We hope you enjoy In Kind. If you would like to get involved with some of our activities this year or if you think we may be able to support a charitable organisation that is important to you, please contact us.
