Community Involvement and Pro Bono Activities
We enjoy a long tradition of pro bono and community service work, and our students, lawyers and staff are encouraged to support causes and initiatives for which they have energy and passion. With the firm's support, many of our lawyers and staff make a significant contribution to the community through volunteer involvement, sponsorship, and pro bono services to a number of established organizations and development stage projects. The firm's lawyers are also active in pro bono litigation, representing various parties at all court levels. In the last three years, Stikeman Elliott firm members in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Vancouver have helped more than 60 organizations, donated countless personal volunteer hours, and raised more than $1,200,000 for charitable organizations in their communities. The firm's Matching Program matches donations of up to $600/year/person for volunteer work, whereby the firm will match staff, law clerk, associate, and student volunteer hours with a registered charity with a cash donation.
