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
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 London is Talent Tap.
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:
Diversity & Inclusion
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).
