We established our Diversity Committee in 2014 to host internal educational events and engage with our clients on gender, LGBT, ethnic, cultural, and disability issues. We are also one of the few law firms in Turkey to have a Corporate Social Responsibility and a Pro Bono program that provides our lawyers with 20 billable hours a year to advise on pro bono matters.

Our partnership with C@rma, a local organization that connects pro bono volunteers with NGOs that need advice on specific projects, provides our lawyers with a steady steam of opportunities to use our legal skills to benefit our community. We also collaborate with other Baker & McKenzie offices on global pro bono initiatives.
