OUR WORK IN THE COMMUNITY

At Herbert Smith Freehills our focus is on using our expertise and leadership to increase access to justice and opportunity for the benefit of local and global communities. At the core of Herbert Smith Freehills’ approach is a long-standing and proud tradition of providing pro bono legal services and advocacy. This commitment to pro bono legal services for members of the public has developed into a broader program of volunteering and charitable giving that involves a much wider range of people across this firm. Many of our vacation clerks participate in pro bono and community work and describe it as one of the highlights of their clerkship.

Herbert Smith Freehills is proud to promote a culture of fairness, equality and inclusion. We believe that having a diverse and open workplace adds new dimensions to how we tackle client challenges and drives innovation forward. Wherever you join us, you’ll find talented people with different views, experiences and backgrounds.

In Australia, we have focused our efforts to be more inclusive and our first priority was to run inclusive leadership sessions for the entire partnership so that we could each understand why diversity and inclusion is a business imperative for our firm.
