Living up to our personal and professional responsibility to support the communities in which we live and work.

We recognize our duty to donate talents, time and resources to benefit greater society. Whether donating money, volunteering time or legal expertise, or bringing awareness to important causes, we invest in community programs to ensure our people can bring their passions and purpose-led selves to work. Our people are supported and empowered to make an impact on the communities and causes that matter most to them.

“Responsible business to us means pulling together to make the world a better place.” Mark Wasserman, Co-Chief Executive Officer

“Our innovation and knowledge services professionals partnered with Fastcase and Georgia State University to develop a new technology tool to better search and analyze court records.” 

Our global pro bono commitment

As a leading global law firm, we recognize our unique ability to advance UN Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. As stated by the UN, conflict, insecurity, weak institutions and limited access to justice remain a great threat to sustainable development. We are committed to promoting the rule of law and increasing access to justice through our long-standing pro bono program.

Our distinguished pro bono history derives primarily from our profound sense of professional and moral obligation to increase access to justice and help under-represented clients and nonprofits otherwise unable to access legal support.
Eversheds Sutherland lawyers are encouraged to provide pro bono legal services as a part of their well-rounded practice. This expectation of service is supported by billable hour credit and attorney review policies that include pro bono as a factor in promotion and bonus eligibility, with specific criteria varying by region. Pro bono work is both rewarding and essential to the professional development of our lawyers.

Our global partnership with the International Rescue Committee

Eversheds Sutherland is a proud global partner of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the global non-profit organization that helps people affected by humanitarian crises. Read more about our global partnership.
