CORRS CHAMBERS WESTGARTH LENDS SUPPORT TO GOOD360 AUSTRALIA

Corrs Chambers Westgarth have signed on as the exclusive providers of pro bono legal advice to Stand3ftBack and are already working hard to launch Good360 in Australia.

Recognised nationally for their tireless commitment to the broader community, Corrs has a community engagement agenda that is diverse and far-reaching. The firm provides pro bono advice for disadvantaged individuals and groups that might otherwise not have access to legal representation as well as charitable and not-for-profit organisations.

It is not surprise then, that when asked to assist in establishing Good360 in Australia, the firm jumped at the chance. Heidi Roberts, Partner and Pro Bono National Manager, Corrs Chambers Westgarth explains.

“The Good360 model has the potential to change the face of giving in Australia. Unfortunately because it is ground-breaking, the amount of legal resources (and funds) required to set it up are out of reach for most not-for-profits. Aware that this could prevent Stand3ftBack in turning their great idea into a reality, Corrs were keen to help.”

Director of Stand3ftBack, Alison Covington agrees.

“Working with a world class firm like Corrs will provide the much needed legal resources required to provide a charitable model such as this. Resources that would be, out of the reach, financially of a start-up like ours. We are providing a model that is efficient, innovative and doesn’t replicate existing services. Corrs recognized our model is pioneering and will benefit the entire charitable sector and we are grateful to have partners such as them who share our vision.”
