MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR TOMORROW

MESSAGE FROM MANAGING PARTNER

 

As one of the leading law firms in South-east Asia, we are aware that there is a set of responsibilities that we must live up to. Corporate social responsibility and community engagement have always been an important of our ethos and identity. We have committed ourselves to ensure that we serve and make positive impacts to the communities in which we operate in Singapore and beyond. It is our pleasure to highlight that apart from activities that we participated within Singapore, our efforts to impact or benefit beneficiaries have been extended to other jurisdictions in our Allen & Gledhill network, such as Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam.

It is heartening to note that our CSR programme does not only involve our lawyers. We also provide opportunities for community engagement. For example, it is an A&G tradition for our staff to participate in our annual food & craft fund-raising fair, to raise funds for our charity beneficiaries. We will continue to examine initiatives to expand on our CSR activities so that our Firm’s expertise, resources and talents can be used to benefit more in the community.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all lawyers and staff who have contributed their time and efforts towards our CSR efforts. We would also like to thank the various charitable and non-profit organisations and clients who have partnered with us in our CSR journey.

Jerry

 

 

 

 

FACTS & FIGURES AT A GLANCE



PRO BONO

Allen & Gledhill’s pro bono programme (the “Programme”) was formally set up in 2008 to fill a gap in pro bono services. Leveraging off our Firm’s expertise and experience in corporate as well as charity law and governance, the Programme focuses on helping charities to navigate legal and regulatory issues.

The programme is managed by a dedicated team of committed lawyers who focuses on providing pro bono advice to charitable and non-profit organisations on agreements, regulations, corporate and charity law and governance, amongst others. The Programme is headed by our Partner Chan Hian Young on a full time basis, and has involved over 200 of our lawyers since its launch in 2008. Partner Lim Lei Theng joined as Co-Head in 2021.
