The partners of Attwells recognise that their offices in St Johns Wood, North London and Ipswich, Suffolk do not exist divorced from their local community.

The close relationship between business and its community aids social cohesion and creates opportunities for all and the development of the local economy.

Attwells recognises that being a socially responsible firm is not just a matter of words or money but also and more importantly a matter of giving.

Attwells has therefore given a commitment to its local community that initial free legal advice is available from lawyers from all its offices.

Attwells has in fact taken this further by giving up its lawyer’s time to offer free on site support to local enterprise agencies such as NWES and local advice agencies such as the CAB and Age Concern.

Every Attwells lawyer is expected to give up one day a month to support its local community at no charge.

Attwells also sponsors local business forums such as the Ipswich Professionals Networking Group that meets monthly and the local schools charities and sporting organisations including the non league football association and West Bergholt ladies football team.

Attwells people management strategy puts training and providing opportunity for local people at its heart.
