The fifth issue of Bell Gully’s Pro Bono and Community Programme report A Helping Hand has been released.
Five years into our formal programme, we continue to build the firm’s support of not-for-profit organisations.
Over the past 12 months, we have also initiated the establishment of New Zealand’s first legal corporate social responsibility network, inviting other New Zealand law firms to share resources, ideas and experiences with a view to maximising the pro bono and community commitment provided by the legal industry as a whole.
This issue also announces the retirement, in December, of Ralph Simpson, partner and chairperson of the pro bono and community committee. Ralph has committed to a very inspirational career change by taking a role with the charitable organisation Nvader, which works to combat human trafficking in South East Asia. Bell Gully wish Ralph and his family all the best with this huge undertaking.
