Social responsibility is important for us. We engage in bold projects that deliver real support to those in need, which put into practice the values we hold dear. We also support cultural initiatives that inspire and move people.
RöIsAlso Partners’ charitable activity: The Rö partners have for years supported the Między Niebem a Ziemią Foundation (Between Heaven and Earth), taking part in its annual charity drives and the auctions that conclude them. Each year we present our clients with books published by the Foundation, inviting them to take part in its work. Since 2014, Katarzyna Petruczenko has worked actively with the Foundation, taking part in projects it organises. In 2018 the first photography workshop with the participation of incurably ill children’s mothers was organised in Ireland.
RöIsAlso pro bono work: Marina Skarbek-Kozietulska provides support to immigrants through the work of the Warsaw Bar Association.
RöIsAlso firm charitable activity: We devote our annual budget for holiday greeting cards to charitable purposes. We are supported in this by our artist friends; they provide designs for cards, which we send in electronic form.
RöIsAlso patron of the arts: For several years we have been a patron of the Polish Film Awards Orły (Eagles), known as “the Polish Oscars”. In 2018 we supported the participation of Piotr Uklański in the exhibition Shouting: Poland! Independence 1918 in the National Museum in Warsaw. In 2016 we sponsored an exhibition of Stanisław Gałek’s works and the Tatra mountain landscapes of his day, organised by the Tatra Museum in the Gallery of 20th Century Art in Zakopane (the collections of Leszek Radwan, Piotr Radwan-Röhrenschef and Witold Huculak).
RöIsAlso support for law students: In 2018 we sponsored the Koźminski Law School team’s participation in the final of the 25th Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna. Since 2016 we have supported the Warsaw Investment Arbitration Debates organised at the University of Warsaw and the Warsaw FDI Pre-Moot preparatory tournament. We also support the University of Warsaw team in the main competition of the FDI International Arbitration Moot.
RöIsAlso ecology: Rö has joined ClientEarth – together with scientists, activists and other lawyers we develop effective environmental legal strategies and ensure the environmental law is properly applied. We also seek to increase social awareness and responsibility towards the environment. We are a paperless firm. In 2018 we supported the Freedom Skiing project, promoting eco-friendly tourism.
