WiGift is the charitable/pro bono aspect of our law firm. It is a registered trademark so the (r) symbol will need to be included. Our website carries the following explanation:
Paladin was conceived as a vehicle to allow us to give back to our community and to society. Enter WiGift®
As lawyers and business consultants, we have been privileged to earn a very good living. Having built our careers, we now choose to support our local community and those whom live within it through two complimentary initiatives:
We invest in people - both individuals and small business owners - by providing free advice and support to those who need it most. We apply both a merits and a means test in order to identify the most deserving matters to receive our assistance on a pro bono basis, and we aim to spend a minimum of 10% of our working time giving free advice. All we ask in return is for an honourable commitment that, when a suitable opportunity arises, the client gives as much of their time to help someone else deserving as we have given to them and we are building a growing network of people to facilitate this;
We Gift 2.5% of our fees to deserving causes which will benefit and enrich the lives of others. We do this in the most socially-inclusive way we could conceive - by charging a discounted rate to our clients in return for their commitment to contribute the discounted amount to our nominated cause from time to time. As a result, all of our fee-paying clients have the rewarding opportunity to support fantastic charitable causes without incurring any costs that they otherwise would not incur.
Best of all, all of our WiGift® clients - if they wish - are linked to us via our WiGift® page and through our social media channels, providing them with the ability to share the details of this charitable support with others. This spreads the word, the WiGift® concept and the network of individuals and businesses which help to make the world a better place.
