Corporate and Social Responsibility
Berlad Graham are fully committed to embracing corporate and social responsibility.
We value diversity in our workforce and truly believe in its value. We recruit and develop our people based on merits only. We offer flexible working patterns and holidays. Looking after our people’s needs and wellbeing both work related and personal is always paramount.
We have always endeavoured to get involved in social and commercial activities in the community. We understand the importance of education and training the new generation and actively provide work experience opportunities to local school students to expose them to the legal professional. We make every effort to engage with local communities and businesses, attending local business events and encouraging referrals within the community. We have hosted and sponsored several local events, encouraging local attendance.
The firm is committed to reducing its carbon footprint where at all possible. As a cloud base firm we encourage our lawyers to work from home and cut down unnecessary commuting and pollution. We further encourage electronic filing and moving where possible to paperless electronic filing.
Pro bono advice
We recognise that sometimes access to justice is difficult and may clients cannot afford legal costs. We offer free advice and take cases pro bono at our discretion.
At Berlad Graham we donate each year to charities of our choice and have a donation scheme with gift aid. We participate in charitable events aimed at raising funds and encourage our consultants in participating in similar activities locally.
