Marketplace 

Operating as a responsible business is a key part of our business strategy. That is why we work to ensure responsible business practice is embedded in our marketplace. From building strong and sustainable relationships with our clients to ensuring we manage the economic, environmental, and social impacts within our supply chain; this pillar supports our core value of ensuring excellence throughout the total experience at William Fry. 

Client Care  

Our aim is to always deliver commercially informed and solution- focused advice of the highest quality to our clients.

 
Our approach is to:

  • Listen carefully and understand our clients’ requirements fully
  • Bring excellence both in terms of standard and innovation to the advice we give
  • Provide a partner led service with lawyers of appropriate expertise
  • Be highly responsive to both our clients and the demands of each transaction
  • Be proactive in seeking to remove obstacles to the achievement of our clients’ goals
  • Demonstrate rigorous professionalism, integrity and respect in our dealings with all parties
  • Be assertive in protecting our clients’ interests at all times.

As part of our full-service offering, we advise our clients on their own responsible business initiatives, for example eco-development, green bonds and financing, sustainable pensions and more.

We apply the same high standards of service to our pro bono clients. Through our Social Impact+ programme we actively support social enterprises that are addressing critical social and environmental issues in our community. We provide workshops and 1:1 legal and non-legal pro bono support as well as funding. Click here for more information on Social Impact+.

Sustainability and Our Clients

While much of our focus is on minimising our own environmental impact, we also advise our clients in their own environmental initiatives, for instance eco-development, green bonds and financing, sustainable pensions and more. See our ESG & Sustainability practice area here.

We also actively support social enterprises that are addressing environmental and sustainability issues in our community, through our Social Impact+ programme. Click here for more information on Social Impact+.

Sustainable Procurement

It is our policy to identify and manage the economic, environmental, and social impacts within our supply chain. We believe that by investing in the local economies and societies in which we operate we help to promote greater economic, social and environmental benefits for all.  

Specifically, we recognise that in the course of our business we must manage our impact with regards to procurement of electricity, food services, water, cleaning services, electronics, paper and other stationery.

All William Fry suppliers must agree to and abide by our Supplier Code of Conduct, which protects workers' rights by setting clear standards for ethical business practices, employment practices, and compliance with environmental and worker safety requirements. 

Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of William Fry's culture and we expect our suppliers to proactively promote the benefits of diversity and inclusion in their workplaces as well. For more on Diversity & Inclusion at William Fry click here.
