These have been determined in consultation with partners and staff. By engaging with the community, the firm seeks to inspire its people and those with whom it works. It prioritises long-term community partnerships that feature a blend of pro bono legal work, skilled volunteering, financial assistance and in-kind support. These partnerships recognise that expertise exists within the non-profit and community sector and that social impact is best achieved through collaboration. Major partners include Australian Business and Community Network, Australian Charities Fund, Australia’s CEO Challenge, Justice Connect, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and LawRight. MinterEllison is a signatory to the National Pro Bono Target and has exceeded the target for the past five consecutive years.
