An official corporate partner to the Haven Partnership, an Irish NGO working to build sustainable communities in Haiti.
We have been heavily involved with Haven since their inaugural trip to Haiti which took place in 2009, one year before the massive earthquake which devastated the country. Gerry Halpenny, partner and head of M&A, participated in the first week long building project. Since then our partnership with this worthy charity has grown.
Each year we send at least one volunteer to Haiti to participate in the annual Build Week. The firm covers the cost of the trip and we ask the volunteer/s to raise additional funds for Haven Projects. This year Kate Kenneally and Sarah Browne travelled to Haiti in April and organised fundraising activities which included a Ceili, a comedy night and an art sale among other events.
We are long time supporters of the Calcutta Run and annually send a team of runners to participate.
The Firm has supported Dress for Success Dublin since its inception in 2011 through pro-bono legal services.
One of our partners, Seanna Mulrean sits on the board of this charity. Dress For Success is an international charity which promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
The Firm 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.
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.
