Corporate Social Responsibility
We work hard to make a positive impact. Values of community action, social involvement and environmental responsibility are the cornerstones of our organizational culture, and they manifest themselves in the firm's various activities, including pro bono representation, volunteering activities, donations to social organizations and our environmental policy.
Pro Bono and Social Involvement
Gornitzky & Co. has been named one of Israel's leading Pro-Bono firms by the Israel Bar Association and Dun & Bradstreet.
We provide legal counsel to various social organizations, including UNICEF (The United Nations Children's Fund), associations, schools, childcare centers and cultural institutions.
As proud members of the Israel Bar Association's pro bono project – "Schar Mitzvah," we help expand accessibility to the justice system and provide legal aid to those who cannot afford to pay for legal services. We also work to improve the educational experience and empower underprivileged children at local primary schools, as the first of the law firms to participate in the "Shiur Acher" (A Different Lesson) program.
Additionally, we serve as pro bono legal counsel to Maala – Business for Social Responsibility, Israel’s leading advocate for corporate social responsibility and good corporate citizenship.
Diversity and Internal Culture
We believe that a diverse workforce is essential to maintaining our competitive advantage, by expanding and developing the pool of talent from which we draw. Gornitzky & Co. is committed to providing equal employment opportunities and a workplace, which fosters development and where all are treated with dignity and respect.
Our growth and success depends not only on the ability to attract the best workforce, but also to encourage and retain those employees. Therefore, as part of our CSR policy, we invest a great deal in our employees’ well-being, leisure activities and special events, including sponsorship and encouragement of office teams in interoffice sports league tournaments, weekend retreats and workplace amenities.
Gornitzky & Co. has been repeatedly named one of the most sought-after law firms in Israel.
Sustainability is at the core of our corporate responsibility strategy. Gornitzky & Co. is committed to reducing its environmental impact through our decision-making and operational processes, helping to shape the future that provides economic, ecological and social benefits for all. We seek to maximize efficiency and minimize consumption, including energy conservation, paper usage and waste reduction and we ensure that environmental considerations weigh into our purchasing policy.
The "Gornitzky Code"
Additionally, each member of the firm’s legal team has signed the ‘Gornitzky Code,’ an ethical code which expresses the values at the foundation of the legal services we provide and by the virtue of which our CSR and environmental policies are shaped. Gornitzky & Co. was the first law firm in Israel to implement such a code, and we take great pride in the commitment of our employees to uphold it.
