As a law firm, we state that our purpose is to improve lives, communities and society, but we haven’t assessed the social impact that our work with our clients generates. We wanted to demonstrate how we positively contribute to social change by considering a selection of our cases and clients and identifying how we secured optimal social benefit. We set up an internal steering group to define the parameters for our first social impact report and commissioned an external agency, the Connectives, to assure our reporting and validate our research.
