In the Community
Holding Redlich has a strong and long-standing commitment to pro bono work. We have relationships with the Public Interest Law Clearing Houses in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, the Refugee and Immigration Legal Centre, the Arts Law Centre and a number of community legal centres.Firm lawyers also staff a Homeless People’s Legal Clinic (HPLC) in Brisbane and a Seniors Rights Legal Clinic (SRLC) in Melbourne, overseen by PILCH in each city.
A key principle of our pro bono program is that pro bono work is always of the same excellent standard as our paid work.
Holding Redlich Social Justice Fund
The Holding Redlich Social Justice Fund is a firm-wide initiative to promote social justice in the community at a grass roots level, through a structured program of philanthropic giving. Staff and partners can choose to contribute to the Fund with all donations matched by the firm. Funds are distributed regularly to community projects in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney.
We have always encouraged our partners and staff to contribute to the community by accepting positions of responsibility in government, community and arts organisations. A number of our lawyers serve on, or have served on, boards and committees of government, statutory, arts and community bodies.
Since 2008, Holding Redlich has supported Chain Reaction, the ultimate corporate bike challenge. Chain Reaction raises money for sick children by challenging senior executives who have a passion for cycling and an awareness of their corporate and social responsibilities, to ride a 1,000 plus kilometre course in seven days.
Holding Redlich is proud to support the inaugural Variety Cycle which aims to raise $1million for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Departing from Sydney in March 2014, Variety Cycle will tour Australia’s most iconic landscapes and pass through Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide en route to Uluru.
