Chapman Tripp partners with Auckland City Mission on largest pro bono project

Chapman Tripp has played a key role in the opening of Auckland City Mission’s new flagship facility in Auckland – the firm’s largest pro bono project.

The firm provided pro bono legal support to the non-profit organisation in a move that “aligns with its commitment to playing an active role within the communities in which it works, through provision of funding, legal skills and time.”

HomeGround is a housing and social services facility which comprises 80 permanent apartment homes for people on the social housing register, rooftop garden and residents’ lounge, community dining room, community spaces, health centre and pharmacy and addiction withdrawal services.

“We are so grateful to have a long-standing partnership with Chapman Tripp,” Auckland City Missioner -Manutaki Helen Robinson said. “They go above and beyond on a daily basis, and nowhere is that more evident than in the countless hours they dedicated to supporting us on all of the intricate legal details of HomeGround.”

“We are very pleased to continue providing ongoing support for Auckland City Mission’s legal needs through our community partnership,” said Graeme Olding, Chapman Tripp’s lead relationship partner. “This has been a significant and fulfilling piece of work for a worthy cause that has drawn on the breadth of experience across our firm.”
