Hall & Wilcox has beaten the National Pro Bono Target for the first time, with the firm’s lawyers contributing more than 15,400 hours of pro bono hours over the past year.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the firm’s commitment to its pro bono and community program endured. A snapshot of the work done over the year is contained in the latest Respect Respect pro bono and community report.
‘Hall & Wilcox’s purpose is to enable our clients, our people and our communities to thrive. Our pro bono and community practice is a key part of this purpose,’ said Partner and Head of Pro Bono & Community Nathan Kennedy.
‘This year we did more pro bono work than ever before. We also launched HW Community Giving, which allows our people to use payroll giving to assist our 11 charity partners in our cause areas of domestic violence, disability, First Nations peoples and older persons.’
The report covers key work undertaken in areas including Reconciliation Action Plan, disability, refugees, underpayments, homelessness, debt recovery, sexual and gender diversity, and access to justice in our communities.
