The Firm has initiated a “Go Green” campaign in the office which culminated in a firm-wide efiling project that has dramatically reduced the amount of paper used in the office. In addition, we actively manage our recycling efforts and run a ‘lights out’ when not use in policy which applies to all electrical devices and lights in all offices and boardrooms.
LK Shields supports our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services who provide specialist care for people with a wide range of needs from rehabilitation to end of life care. Care is provided both on-site in Harold’s Cross Hospice and Blackrock Hospice as well as in the local community to over 1,500 individuals every year.
This year, the Firm also took part in Ireland's Biggest Coffee Morning, the main annual fundraising event to raise much needed funds for local hospice services.
