Our work in social responsibility has taken a number of forms over the years. The main goal has always been to support people in need via skilled organisations, for example with financial support or through pro-bono legal assistance.

Social responsibility

We believe in making a positive impact on the society around us. To achieve this, we have a pro-bono scheme where our lawyers provide free legal assistance to individuals, companies and associations. Additionally, we support several good initiatives with both pro-bono and financial support, including : Norwegian Helsinki Committee, Stine Sofie's Foundation, and One Ocean Expedition.
