Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck: Making a Difference in Our Community

 When it comes to making a difference in our community, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is all in.

Terms like “corporate social responsibility” and “corporate citizenship” didn’t exist back in 1968 when the firm began. The founders were ahead of their time when they chose to make philanthropy an integral part of the firm. From their Karma volunteer program to financial support of nonprofit organizations to extensive pro bono and board service, giving back is, was and always will be, an important part of they we are.

They are proud to share with you their Community Impact Report, which details their community engagement across all of their offices last year.

Please take a few minutes to read through the report and learn more about the firm’s community efforts. And if you’re interested in getting involved, let them know. They’d love to help get you connected.
