We pride ourselves on our ability to collaborate with our clients, leading industry organisations and networks, and other third party organisations.
Our long running CSR initiatives are only a small example of our commitment and success in partnering with other companies and organisations.
We have been long term members of international networks Ius Laboris and the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance, which have strengthened our relationships and how we work internationally. Outside of these networks we are also proud to have special relationships with firms around the world where a particular skill or region needs dedicated support, such as the one which has lead to the development of DataCheckPoint.
Away from direct support for charitable groups and international legal advice we are proud to support a variety of organisations that align with our values and expertise.
We have partnerships with:
