Tanner De Witt wins Pro Bono Awards from Law Society of HK


Partner Joanne Brown, Consultant Philip Swainston and Solicitor Rowan Varty represented Tanner De Witt at the Pro Bono and Community Service Award Presentation Ceremony, which was held at the Department of Justice on 13 December 2017.

We are pleased to announce that we won a Bronze Award, while Joanne, Philip and Rowan  all received Individual Awards for their work.

In order to win the Bronze Award, the law firm must achieve no less than 10 scores which is calculated thus: half the scores come from the average number of pro bono hours per lawyer of a law firm in the award period (2016 – 2017), while the other half represent the percentage of lawyers who performed more than 10 hours of pro bono work.

Congratulations to our diligent and conscientious team!
