Goodman Derrick’s CSR and ProBono activity seeks to make a genuine difference for people and organisations who need it most. Whether this is through our fundraising and matched funding activities, our ProBono work for small charities and individuals, our support of The Funding Network, or our lawyers playing an active role in organisations they believe in.
Our commitment to providing Pro Bono advice - legal work done at no charge for good – covers a very wide range of situations. We do this work as part of our commitment to the community and because we know that representation by a reputable firm can fundamentally change the course of a dispute or cause.
Our recent ProBono work includes:
We are proud corporate members of LawWorks. LawWorks is a charity that connects volunteer lawyers with people in need of legal advice, who are not eligible for legal aid and cannot afford to pay and with the not-for-profit organisations that support them. More information can be found on their website at www.lawworks.org.uk.
Goodman Derrick are corporate members of TFN, a charity that gives people the chance to come together with a philanthropic purpose to support causes they care about. Their events – through an innovative live crowdfunding model – also fund charitable projects that catalyse social change. Crowdfunding events vary in size and structure, ranging from small groups to large scale events hosted by corporate organisations. Our involvement with TFN stems from the hard work of Stephanie Brobbey, Senior Solicitor, who is also a trustee of the charity. More details are available at www.thefundingnetwork.org.uk.
The firm supports the Edmund Davies Legal Education Trust (LEDLET), a charity which assists Welsh pupils in their pre-A level year to consider and pursue a career in the law. The LEDLET January 2018 newsletter, available for download at the bottom of the page, describes how we have provided support recently.
