Giving back is important to us. Over the years, our very committed and generous lawyers and staff fundraise for, participate in, and give to, worthwhile charities and non-profits in our communities. We launched LawsonGives, which provides us with an opportunity to bring our community involvement together across all of our offices. For example, the firm’s annual United Way campaign is widely supported by the staff and lawyers and the firm matches staff contributions in many of our charitable activities. In recent years, the firm has raised donations for the Canadian Red Cross to support relief efforts, including for those affected by the BC forest fires in 2017 and the Fort McMurray wildfires in 2016.

We ensure our contributions reach various segments of our community, including children and youth, arts, education, health, services and international fundraisers.

Our staff and lawyers are committed to donating their time to the community through serving on the boards of charities, non-profits and community organizations. They serve as directors and members of associations that keep us connected to our clients' industries as well as the legal profession including: Vancouver Board of Trade, Business Council of British Columbia and Family Services of Greater Vancouver.
