MinterEllisonRuddWatts is jam packed with exceptionally competent people at the top of their fields. But as technically skilled as they are, they are kind, compassionate and supportive.
Investing in our community
Giving back to the community is a big part of our culture. Across the firm our people are doing great things by volunteering, fundraising and providing pro-bono legal advice. We encourage everyone to get involved in our community investment programme which is both interesting and rewarding.
There are a number of regular volunteering initiatives at MinterEllisonRuddWatts, for example:
- Homework Help Club, where volunteers go to a decile one primary school in Auckland or Wellington to help children with their homework each week;
- Mothers Project, where a group of volunteers visit mothers in prison in Auckland and Wellington to help them maintain meaningful connections with their children.
- Kelston Girls’ College Mentoring, where a number of our lawyers meet regularly with a group of students from Kelston Girls’ College
Partner Stacey Shortall established these valuable initiatives, which are now delivered nationally thanks to a network of volunteers.
