We embrace our responsibilities as a law firm in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. In addition to a range of small-scale initiatives, we are committed to focusing on a number of areas about which we are passionate.

Children rights
The Terre des Hommes foundation promotes the rights of the child and attempts to impel governments to respect these rights. It is an endeavour  we fully support as a law firm.

We believe in sharing our knowledge. That’s why a number of our attorneys give lectures free of charge at several educational institutions. They include Tilburg University, Radboud University and the Law Faculty of the Avans-Fontys University of Applied Sciences.

Cultural heritage
We are pleased to do our part to protect our cultural heritage. One way we do this is by sponsoring the St. John’s Cathedral in ’s-Hertogenbosch and the Grote Kerk in Breda. These historic and iconic buildings both beautify the city centres of these Dutch cities and are on the list of the four most important historical buildings in the Dutch Province of North Brabant.

Idealistic in nature  
We offer sharply reduced rates for organisations that are idealistic in nature. For example, we support in this way the I-Cane Foundation that  promotes the interests of blind and visually-impaired people. We furthermore give our colleagues the opportunity to work for Lawyers for Lawyers during office hours. This foundation supports oppressed lawyers worldwide and frequently works in partnership with Amnesty International and Human Rights First.
