The Simmons & Simmons Charitable Foundation was established in 2009 to further our goals in supporting access to justice, work and opportunities. The Foundation's four trustees are Colin Passmore (Senior Partner), Richard Dyton (Pro Bono Partner), Noro-Lanto Ravisy (Partner Paris) and Fiona Loughrey (Partner Hong Kong).
The Foundation tends to favour smaller charities where the funding can be shown to make a sustainable impact.
The Foundation also prioritises charities in which the firm’s staff can have an active involvement and address social inclusion, for example, by helping the less privileged to access financial and educational opportunities.
Examples of some of the charities we have supported can be found in our annual CR Review.
