Our vision to be the leading national law firm in the UK famous for its client experience is underpinned by our aspiration to be the leading law firm in the UK famous for its positive contribution to society. ‘Shine: Bright ideas for positive change’ encapsulates our approach to corporate responsibility as a result of the way we manage our business and empower everyone to play their part.
In understanding, measuring and addressing the direct, and indirect economic, social and environmental impacts associated with our firm our Shine programme focuses on:
Building and maintaining enduring community relationships that have positive impacts for the organisations we work with;
Demonstrating high standards of environmental responsibility in all our operations and preventing or minimising the negative environmental impacts associated with our activities, products and services. Continual improvement forms an important part of our approach;
Working collaboratively in the marketplace with our clients and suppliers to evidence best corporate responsibility practice aligned with our vision; and
Delivering an innovative and market-differentiated employee value proposition based on the firm’s values and the Shoosmiths Way.
We are committed to regularly reviewing our approach and making this policy available to all interested stakeholders.
