November 18, 2014

We are delighted to have been awarded the Law Net Award for Best Community Contribution at the annual awards ceremony held on Friday night at The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield.

The Best Community Contribution Award recognises firms that have implemented policies or executed projects that have positively impacted on their community and generated outcomes that have a long term benefit for all parties.

LawNet have summarised the award in the following – “Cleaver Fulton Rankin demonstrated its commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility through an extensive programme of charity work, combined with a commitment to supporting the creation of a skilled future workforce and reducing the firm’s impact on the environment. Employees consistently demonstrate an inspiring level of commitment to the firm’s charity agenda and are encouraged to volunteer and give their time to the community wherever possible. This hard work has paid off, with the firm regularly raising over £20,000 for their chosen charity each year”.

Announcing the awards, Chris Marston, chief executive of LawNet, said:   “The aim of our annual awards is to get to the heart of what makes an innovative law firm, underpinned by a commitment to excellence, and these were outstanding examples of that ethos.”

We have a staff led Charity Committee who do a great job promoting this ethos throughout the firm. We also take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and have a number of systems in place to support this, such as recycling and reducing power consumption within the office.”

There is always a positive approach when it comes to community and charity work, and staff participation is never a problem.
