To us, being a responsible business is

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:
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

St Werburgh's City Farm (Bristol) and Moseley Road Swimming Baths (Birmingham).
