Our commitment to community development is based on the understanding that the focus on delivering a positive impact, needs to extend beyond our clients, to also include the communities around us.
The focus on delivering positive impact goes beyond our clients to include the community we live in. In this respect, we follow a simple concept — we have the responsibility to make a difference and help our communities succeed. We, therefore, dedicate substantial energy, talent and resources to meaningful initiatives.
We are committed to providing legal services pro bono to those who cannot afford counsel. It benefits our communities and helps deepen our own professional experience. We believe that the rule of law and access to justice must prevail for an equal and dignified existence for all. Backed by this thought, we operate our CSR initiative ‘Pankh’, which translates into ‘wings of flight’.
Pankh engages with NGOs for social campaigns on child welfare policies and to educate women about their legal rights. We also undertake cases pro bono for NGOs and social entrepreneurs by leveraging our network through TrustLaw, Thomson Reuters Foundation and Lex Mundi legal pro bono programs. We work in collaboration with global institutions such as UNICEF, Global Rights for Women and International Justice Mission to safeguard women and child rights. Our key work in these areas has helped protect children against abuse, women against domestic violence and minors against trafficking.
Over the years, we have established a strong relationship with global organizations and non-corporate ecological think tanks to assess changes in laws on child protection, promote welfare development and provide sustainable and affordable energy solutions.
