Corporate partnership with Save the Children Norway

We support the efforts to strengthen the legal protection of children

Wiersholm has a strong pro bono tradition, and we believe that a strategic and long-term collaboration provides the best results. In January 2019, we entered into a 5-year corporate partnership agreement with Save the Children Norway.

Save the Children’s focus on children’s rights and education fits well without our activities and legal competence. Investing in children, young people and education is fundamental to social development and growth, locally as well as globally.

Our legal competence is valuable to Save the Children, and in in these five years Wiersholm will contribute legally and financially to the organisation’s important work in internal as well as external arenas.

Our collaboration is built on three pillars:

  • We provide financial support for the project Green Generation in Cambodia.
  • We provide pro bono advice in accordance with Save the Children’s requirements.
  • We have a joint trainee program called Responsible Business Trainee.

Financial support

As part of our partnership we support the project Green Generation in Cambodia.

– We are happy to be able to contribute financially to a project that is so clearly about creating a better future for children. The climate crisis worries us all, and the consequences are particularly great for children in poor areas of the world where they depend on vulnerable natural resources, says Christel Søreiede, Partner in Wiersholm.

Pro bono

Taking responsibility for the society in which we work is of the utmost importance to Wiersholm. It is our opinion that this responsibility must go beyond our core business. Through our  collaboration with Save the Children, we assist as their legal advisor in Norway.

Responsible Business Trainee

The Responsible Business Trainee programme gives you the opportunity to work within a legal field other than business law for an organisation fighting for children’s rights in Norway and abroad.
