Wellington-based Bell Gully partner Rachael Brown is currently responsible for arranging secondments of the firm’s junior lawyers to community law centres in Wellington and Hutt Valley, the objective being to provide a solicitor to assist for one day each week on a pro bono basis.

Brown herself is described as a “prolific” pro bono practitioner with a number of clients, including home healthcare and support provider Access Homehealth. “As a charitable organisation faced with litigation ... we were potentially incurring costs that could have limited our ongoing charitable activities throughout New Zealand. [Bell Gully’s] assistance in meeting the costs ofthese legal fees has been a substantial assistance to our organisation,” said Access CEO Graeme Titcombe.
