In the community

At Buddle Findlay, giving back to our community is an important element of the way we do business.
We are firmly committed to supporting the New Zealand communities in which we work and live.
Our community strategy is based on involving our staff and we are committed to building a stronger and sustainable community in New Zealand by:

Child Health Foundation

The Buddle Findlay Child Health Foundation is a charitable trust that was set up in 2005 and supports children receiving residential medical care in New Zealand. If hospitals face an urgent need for equipment or other vital resources, the Foundation will quickly consider applications for funding to help meet the need and provide an immediate and direct benefit to the children.

Pro bono

Buddle Findlay recognises the difficulty some community organisations have in accessing legal services and that money saved on legal fees can be channelled towards making a real difference. We have a comprehensive pro bono policy in place, encouraging our lawyers to dedicate their time and expertise to helping those in need.

Over the years, we have voluntarily assisted a number of individuals, charities and community projects. Many of our partners and staff are also involved in community boards, committees and charitable trusts. Some of our pro bono clients are: CCS Disability Action Auckland, Dress for Success, Kaibosh, Laura Fergusson Trust, Save the Children New Zealand, WWF-New Zealand and Volunteer Army Foundation.
