On Friday, 3 June 2022, the HLB network celebrated #HLBCommunities Day worldwide. In the German network, 342 dedicated colleagues collected 44,296 kilometres for a good cause over the course of a month. Thanks to this great effort, a total of €22,300 was raised for social projects. The participating HLB members are delighted to be able to support ten social projects with their donation.

More than 1,000 HLB colleagues worldwide got involved in 38 social projects in their community on this day

The #HLBCommunities Day is an initiative of the global HLB network based in London, which currently has 23 member firms in Germany. On this day, partners and employees in law firms around the world get involved in social projects at their location.
