Law firm Anthony Collins reveals Social Impact Report
Anthony Collins (AC) reveals the scale and impact of its social purpose-driven legal work with the publication of its annual Social Impact Report, kick-starting the firm’s 50th-anniversary celebrations.
The report, which assesses how the firm fulfils its purpose of improving lives, communities, and society, highlights the impact of its work across its specialisms – from charities and education to housing, local government, and individuals.
In 2022, 94% of AC’s work was measured to have a direct positive social impact.
During this time almost 50% of AC’s work was for organisations with charitable status. A further 28% supported individuals, 17% directly supported local government organisations, and five percent focused on social businesses, including not-for-profits, co-operatives, and community interest companies. Over the last year, AC has helped register 97 new charities.
Finally, the firm’s private legal services team helped to recover over £25 million in clinical negligence and personal injury compensation claims to help buy life-changing equipment.
Peter Hubbard, Senior Partner at Anthony Collins, commented: “Our Social Impact Report gives us the opportunity to reflect on what we’ve been able to contribute over the past twelve months. Each year, hearing the stories of those we have helped and how their lives have changed, drives us to continue to do more the following year.
“This report marks a special year for us, as we celebrate our 50th anniversary and our newly accredited B Corp status, which makes us accountable – to ourselves, our clients, and the wider community – on how we are making a positive contribution to society and the environment.
“We look forward to building on our work to date and continuing to make a real impact on more people’s lives.”
