For a law firm, pro bono is at the heart of any Responsible Business program. As lawyers, we do pro bono in order to make legal advice and the legal system more accessible to all. Beyond pro bono, lawyers and staff members volunteer their time on a wide variety of community service initiatives involving no legal assistance at all. The firm's Responsible Business program includes initiatives in the areas of Pro Bono, Community, Diversity & Inclusion, Environment, Supply Chain and Ethics & Risk Management. At Reed Smith, we believe Responsible Business is about who we are and who we want to be. It is about how we conduct ourselves with and towards others and with the worlds in which we live.

Reed Smith's contributions to pro bono and Responsible Business bring the members of our firm closer together, and deepen our understanding of the communities in which we live.  To learn more about the CSR programme in EMEA, please see our EMEA Responsible Business Report.
