Corporate and Social Responsibility
Berlad Graham are fully committed to embracing corporate and social responsibility.
We truly value diversity in our workplace. 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 profession. 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-based firm we encourage our lawyers to work from home and cut down unnecessary commuting and pollution. We further encourage the electronic filing of documents and operating a paperless environment wherever possible
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.
