Responsible Business

Responsible Business

Global and local challenges affect businesses, countries and communities and it is in everyone’s interest to address them. In fact, we see it as our responsibility as a leading top tier law firm to do precisely this, just like the companies we represent. We can apply our unique legal and commercial skills, our relationships and resources, to shape some of the big issues in our world by providing access to justice and access to opportunities.

The way we operate at King & Wood Mallesons reflects who we are, what we stand for and where we aspire to be. We provide the highest calibre services to our clients and we want to do so in a responsible and sustainable way. We are committed to running our business in an inclusive and diverse way, demonstrating excellence in every aspect of our business and creating a unique culture in which we value all our people, our clients and the world in which we operate. We are also firmly committed to long-lasting, significant and positive difference to the communities in which we live, work and operate by creating access to justice and access to opportunities.


KWM Community Impact

Show less

In July 2018, King & Wood Mallesons proudly relaunched our pro bono & community program and under a new name, KWM Community Impact. Our program’s new name reflects our same commitment to the communities in which we live, work and operate, but with a renewed focus on what we are trying to achieve – sustained, long term and significant impact for those in need. KWM Community Impact represents our entire offering to the community and is comprised of three key streams – pro bono legal services, specialist & community services, and philanthropy. The singular objective of the program is to reduce inequality & poverty in Australia. Learn more about pro bono, specialist & community services or philanthropy at KWM.

We are extremely proud of the progress we have made under our Reflect and Innovate RAPs, and our broader R&E Project, towards our vision of developing a culture of friendship, trust, respect and deep partnership between our firm and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, organisations and communities. In July 2020 we proudly adopted our third Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) know as a Stretch RAP. This Stretch RAP will enable us to expand our sphere of influence, embed our reconciliation activities more deeply and significantly build on the commitment we first made in 2016 when we adopted our Reflect RAP.

Diversity of thought, perspective and experience is critical to our business success and we are committed to achieving that diversity in several important ways. We know it can only be achieved with systems and practices which encourage people to be their best and pass that on to their colleagues, clients and community.
