Pro Bono & Social Impact


Our approach & impact

Our partnership with Clyde & Co has been instrumental in assisting displaced children and families to reach safety in Europe. Working with Pro Bono lawyers, we’ve been able to assist many more child refugees fleeing Afghanistan and Ukraine to access a safe route and reunite with their families.

Clyde & Co helps clients to assess and manage risk. Our Looking Glass Report for 2022 reported people challenges, the economy, increased international and domestic regulation and climate change to be among the top risk areas facing businesses. Under our Pro Bono & Social Impact pillar, we focus on working with community partners around the world to help address associated societal challenges. Using our professional expertise and skills, we donate our time as well as fundraise to have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and beyond.

Regardless of whether our people occupy legal or non-legal roles, we know that they all have skills and experience that can benefit our communities. All our colleagues are therefore encouraged and supported to participate in our Pro Bono & Social Impact programme through our “24 Hour Challenge” and “Responsible 60” schemes which enable them to dedicate time to our various volunteering initiatives. For our people wishing to fundraise for the causes they personally support we have a matched fundraising policy. Our global programme focuses on three key areas: inspiring young lives, equality before the law and sustainability and climate change.
