Interlaw's Affinity Groups help to forge stronger relationships between our strategic partners by encouraging greater collaboration and sharing of best working practices. Our Affinity Groups are as follows: 

Diversity, Inclusion & Community

Our global team of lawyers subscribe to a set of core values, including a commitment to diversity, inclusion and social responsibility in the local areas where we work. We believe that our ability to build a successful and indeed sustainable network is dependent on having strong relationships across all our stakeholder groups, including our strategic partners and clients, and by making a useful contribution to businesses and the wider civil society.

We are therefore proud to support cultural diversity and the advancement of all the lawyers in our network irrespective of race, gender, disability or religion. By sharing best practices and engaging thoughtful speakers, we aspire to foster strong personal and professional relationships around the world to positively impact our strategic partners and clients as well as the communities we serve. 

We create a culture where diversity is celebrated as a strength and offer highly experienced lawyers to national and global clients who recognize that individuals of diverse cultures and backgrounds bring new perspectives and thoughts to the table.  

Interlaw member firms' community leadership initiatives include: pro bono legal service programs; betterment of the environment initiatives; assisting vulnerable populations; advancing legal education programs that provide cross-cultural opportunities; and championing investment in emerging markets.
