Responsible Business
To us, being a responsible business is second nature; a core part of Bevan Brittan's identity, running through our culture and embodied by the clients we serve.
Bevan Brittan seeks to play an active role within its local office communities. Through regular fundraising events, support for local initiatives and annual charity donations at Christmas, we have established a culture of giving within the firm. This has laid the foundations for our Responsible Business strategy.


In December 2020 we donated a total of £40,000 to our four regional office charities, with each charity receiving £10,000 towards the causes colleagues support throughout the year. The donations went towards providing vital services after a particularly challenging year. Our current selected charity in Birmingham in Inunity.


We want to demonstrate our commitment to these causes through action rather than words; colleagues from across the firm are already heavily involved, living and breathing the four pillars of our Responsible Business strategy:
• Community Engagement
• Diversity & Inclusion
• Wellbeing
• Environmental Sustainability


Collectively, these four pillars ensure we look after our colleagues' wellbeing; offer an environment in which all can progress on merit, regardless of personal circumstances or background; give something back to the communities in which we work; and protect the environment.


Some recent initiatives include:
• Strava running club: a virtual firm-wide running club on Strava, with regular challenges to keep us all motivated to stay active.
• Live Cook Along for Black History Month: We hosted a live virtual 'Cook Along' to share the connective power of food and community.
• UK Disability History Month: We supported the event with informative pieces and real life stories, reflecting our commitment to supporting those of our colleagues who have a disability or who care for someone with a disability.
• Each lawyer has the opportunity to undertake pro bono legal work for local charities and not-for-profit organisations. This has seen colleagues support the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity (Bristol), St Werburgh's City Farm (Bristol) and Moseley Road Swimming Baths (Birmingham).
