Australia’s leading independent law firm, Corrs Chambers Westgarth, has been named the inaugural winner of the Legal Firm Award in the 2020 WA Attorney General's Community Service Law Awards.

Currently in their fourteenth year, these awards recognise the work of those who have made an outstanding pro bono contribution to the benefit of the Western Australian community.

The Legal Firm Award, introduced this year, recognises the contributions made by law firms. 

Corrs’ Perth office has a long-standing commitment to community work and providing pro bono services to Western Australian organisations, including the Aboriginal Legal Service of WA, Law Access and the Employment Law Centre.

Corrs Perth pro bono partner, Spencer Flay, said: “As a society and a profession we all benefit from the rule of law, the strength of which depends on access to justice for all. Corrs is humbled to be recognised for our contribution towards ensuring access to justice for some of the most marginalised in our community. 

“We are enormously grateful for the long and deep relationships we have built with the ALSWA, Law Access and the many community legal centres and individuals with whom we work across Western Australia, and look forward to continuing that work in the years to come.”
