About Us

Social Impact

Social responsibility is at the heart of Mishcon's core values. Whilst our previous activities were having a positive impact, the management team believed we could maximise that impact. If we were to genuinely bring our core values to life, and effect change in a measureable way that authentically represents the firm, we knew we had to be more radical.

In November 2013 we launched our new social impact programme, developed to inspire our lawyers to effect the change they want to see in the world. A reflection of our values, the approach is both democratic and collective. We understand that lawyers are well positioned to impact society and saw that we could better exploit the specific skills and experience they possess. We realised we must tap into what it was that made our lawyers want to become lawyers in the first place - to re-kindle a passion for justice. In this case, social justice.
