About:Our impact

HL BaSE Impact Report 2017


We believe in business as a force for good. Our social impact clients are leading the way on responsible and sustainable business and we do not underestimate the value we gain from working with them. Whether developing new technology to combat climate change or advancing healthcare in underserved communities, we are in awe of the creativity and drive that our clients show as they push for real and sustainable change.

Our goal is to ensure that access to legal support is not a barrier to scale, enabling organisations to grow their impact in a sustainable way.

Our mission is accessible legal support for business as a force for good.

In 2017 we invested over 5,500 hours of advice worth more than $2.68 million, involving more than 350 lawyers from across the firm.  We supported over 80 social businesses and worked on deals attracting more than $20 million of impact investment.
