Our Firmwide commitment and effort
Hudson McKenzie is at the forefront in providing pro bono legal services to individuals and organisations who cannot otherwise afford legal counsel. Our lawyers make a difference every day by contributing their talents to providing pro bono legal services.
At Hudson McKenzie we are committed to spending three percent of our total billable time annually on pro bono work. In addition, we are a signatory to the United Kingdom’s Joint Protocol for Pro Bono Legal Work. As a result of this dedication, we commit thousands of hours annually to pro bono service.
We approach pro bono efforts with the same energy, enthusiasm and resources as work for commercial clients, and associates receive billable hour credit for their pro bono work. We require all lawyers to perform at least 25 hours of pro bono work per year to ensure universal participation in our pro bono programme. We strive to find projects that make a difference and that match the personal interests of our lawyers.
