As a firm we are dedicated to our community. Our sense of community starts at home and extends naturally into areas of society that may benefit from our assistance. Supporting communities is a passion that runs deep within the firm. We give our people the opportunity to participate in causes that are close to their hearts. By being supportive – rather than prescriptive – we are able to inspire greater participation within the firm and, collectively, contribute more to the communities that we hold dear.
Cornwalls has a long tradition of performing pro bono legal work, including providing advice on a no fee or reduced fee basis and assisting not for profit organisations on a voluntary basis.
Our pro bono scheme allows us to provide legal services (free of charge or at a reduced rate) to disadvantaged persons or organisations, for the public good, on matters of broad public or community concern, or to not for profit organisations with which the firm may or may not have an existing relationship.
Through our scheme, we make available our skills, talents, people and resources to individuals or organisations that may otherwise not have access to them. In turn, the scheme benefits our people by giving them professional development opportunities and experience, and allows them to contribute to people in need.
