Corporate Social Responsibility


We recognise that our day to day business activities have an impact on the wider society and community in which we operate.  For that reason we have developed a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy which we believe not only ensures that we act responsibility in respect of our clients, employees, stakeholders but also in relation to the environment and our local community as well.

By setting high social, environmental and ethical standards we are paving the way for profitable growth and a more sustainable future

Our CSR activities can be viewed under the following 4 categories:

  • Our People
  • The community
    • Pro Bono Work
    • Charitable initiatives
  • The environment
  • Arts and Culture

Our People

LCF Law is an equal opportunities employer and can offer a wide range of opportunities for people at all levels of their career.  Whether you join us as a trainee, lawyer, partner or support staff you can expect a challenging and rewarding career in a modern, friendly working environment.

We place great emphasis on an individual’s personal development, offering a structured induction programme, ongoing in-house training and the opportunity to further progress your career with external training courses and workshops.

It is our intention that our people will make a difference to our clients.
