International Society of Primerus Law Firms

Global Day of Service Recap

Join Primerus members worldwide and Primerus staff in a “Global Day of Service”. On Saturday, December 5th, Primerus is organizing a worldwide day of volunteer service. In the spirit of the Primerus pillar of Community Service, Primerus members are encouraged to schedule time on December 5th to volunteer in their local cities. Our goal is to have 170+ Primerus member law firms on this single day giving back in their local communities demonstrating Primerus members are in fact “Good People Who Happen to be Good Lawyers”. Together we unite to help those less fortunate in our individual communities to work towards a healthy Global Community!

2019 Global Day of Service Recap

There are people who need help in every corner of the world. Together we can unite to help those less fortunate in our individual communities to work towards a healthy global community. I can’t thank enough everyone at the firms that participated. The work they do for the people of their community, not only this month, but throughout the year, truly embodies what it means to be a Primerus member.- Chris Dawe, Primerus VP of Service and Associate General Counsel

On December 5th, 2019, sixteen Primerus member firms reported that they contributed to their communities through service. Primerus has a set of core values, the Primerus Six Pillars, that all members are committed to upholding. One of those values is community service. Primerus organized the Global Day of Service to celebrate the commitment its members have made to giving back to their communities demonstrating Primerus members are in fact “Good People Who Happen to be Good Lawyers”.
