To celebrate its 25th anniversary, city law firm Wosskow Brown has launched a charitable foundation.

An extension of the firm’s already strong ethos of giving back to the communities in which it operates, the Wosskow Brown Foundation will support businesses to grow, and charities, social enterprises, grassroots sports clubs and individuals. Richard Caborn has agreed to first year president.

Said managing partner Ian Brown: “The foundation is a formalisation of the support we have always given to the community and to business. It’s about helping people achieve their ambitions through taking lots of small steps. We aim to be an important partner for our beneficiaries.”

The foundation’s first programme, the WB 100, aims to assist 100 in each category for five years through a formal programme and ad hoc support, including 20 hours of individual support and a series of talks on success by local figureheads.

In launching the foundation, Wosskow Brown is also answering a call from government for private sector business to do more to grow the local economy, create jobs and raise aspirations.

Commented Wosskow Brown commercial partner Kiley Tan: “We cannot deliver these ambitious aims on our own and we hope local entrepreneurs, business owners and professionals will continue to give their time to help others .”
