Causes We Support

We’ve been part of the communities of Calderdale and Kirklees for over 130 years. We live and work here and are proud to make a positive contribution to many important community causes and events.

 We support several local charities by carrying out their legal work for free or at a reduced rate - we see this as a practical way of making a positive contribution to the community. We are proud to support Overgate Hospice, The Next Step Trust, Working Wonders and The RSPCA in this way.

Our  Brighouse office provides an official base for The Bearder Charity, which awards grants totaling £190,000 each year to a wide range of projects in Calderdale.  Over the past two decades, The Bearder Charity has supported thousands of individual and community projects across the Calder Valley.

Our Huddersfield office has close professional links with the University of Huddersfield, where we are proud members of their innovative Partners in Law scheme which provides students with networking, mentoring and training opportunities through renowned legal firms. We are among a select group of highly regarded legal professionals who support the development of the University’s law students in this way.

If you run a business that’s based in Huddersfield or Brighouse, you might have seen us at some of the events organised by Huddersfield Town Partnership and Brighouse Business Initiative; both are dynamic local organisations we are proud to support.

If you live in Calderdale or Kirklees, chances are you’ll have seen us at many local events including Huddersfield Literature Festival, Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival and Brighouse Victorian Christmas Festival.

Many of our dedicated team happily give their free time to local organisations, taking on roles as school governors, sports coaches and as trustees of local charities, as well as raising funds for local causes by organising and participating in a real mix of events - from quiz nights to skydiving and bog snorkelling!

We are fierce advocates of the very highest ethical and professional standards and we practise and support equality and diversity in everything we do.
