LLOYDS PR SOLICITORS’ SUBMISSION

Lloyds PR Solicitors has a corporate social responsibility program that focuses on the importance of the rule of law and justice. This is no surprise as the firm, as a criminal defence specialist, is focused on ensuring equality and legal representation for all of its clients in respect to their matters.

The firm’s social responsibility program consists of the following components:

•       Investing in employees and diversity: The firm recognises that individuals from varying backgrounds can bring a range of ideas and innovation to develop the firm and ensure that it can support and enhance its client care. The firm is an equal opportunities employer and promotes diversity through its recruitment process and assessment of professional development for its staff. It ensures that it has a multi-cultural and multi-lingual workforce and a number of its employees speak additional languages to English including Spanish, Romanian, Lithuanian, Hindi, Gujarati and Tamil. Most importantly, the firm encourages all employees to respect the individuality of their colleagues and to feel comfortable in making their own contribution to the firm, contingent on their experiences and goals. Lloyds PR Solicitors recognises that people drive the success of the firm and it nurtures and cares for each individual on both a professional and personal level.

•       Investing in the local community: The firm is passionate about widening access to the profession and believes that as a business it is in a position where it can help young people to reach their full potential by overcoming barriers created by society and personal circumstances. As a result, it regularly offers work experience placements to individuals that are considering a career in law; this is regardless of their previous experience or background. The only major requirement is that the individual wishes to learn and gain an informative experience. A number of employees within the firm are keen on developing others and the firm has programs tailored to providing work experience placements to individuals of different age groups so that it can provide them with a valuable experience. The commitment and dedication of a number of employees within the firm, in helping the younger generation in the local community, is partly due to the fact that employees within the firm completed work experience before becoming full-time employees. This shows that the firm is able to identify talent, nurture it and retain it over time; it is a firm that truly does care about the community and creating opportunities to help individuals achieve their professional goals. 

•       Investing in volunteering and pro-bono initiatives: The firm believes that it is important for its employees to be involved in volunteering and pro-bono initiatives so that they can aid others that are in need as well as develop their own skills. As a result, the firm is involved in ad-hoc activities including previously assisting in a fact finding mission for the United Nations in connection with the interception in international waters of a humanitarian convoy. With a commitment to widening access to justice, the firm also completes pro-bono work in respect to ancillary legal matters to which the firm is currently working on, so that it can assist its clients as much as possible, even if it is not being paid for such work. A number of the firm’s employees are passionate about volunteering and pro-bono activities and are active in various associations and societies including the Haldane Society. The firm has also been involved in the London Legal Walk. Employees within the firm have also been publicly awarded for their efforts and commitment to being involved in pro-bono work.
