It is very important to us at Chan Neill Solicitors LLP that our people use their talents and resources to help others and to support the communities in which we represent, live and make our living.
As a firm, our activities include pro bono work for our solicitors that not only allow them to get involved in areas of law which gives them a different perspective but also the opportunity to make a good social impact. At Chan Neill Solicitors LLP, we regularly give legal advice on a pro-bono basis. Chan Neill Solicitors LLP helps, on a pro-bono basis, human rights and charity law-related cases, and has previously seconded one of our solicitors to a start-up social enterprise headed by the Rt. Hon Lord Wei of Shoreditch.
Through Michael Chan, Senior Partner at Chan Neill, the firm makes time for charitable causes and strives to make Chinese culture and links in the United Kingdom more prominent. Michael chaired and helped to set up the London Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in his year as President of Chinatown Lions Club, and with the Hong Kong Economic & Trade Office in 2007 and 2008 respectively. This festival is now a major annual event in the British Chinese community calendar and funds raised go to many needy causes. Michael is also a recipient for the Mervyn Jones Award which recognizes Lions with exemplary contributions.
