«We firmly believe that the sum of individual and collective initiatives contributes to building a fairer and more sustainable world.»
Our lawyers have been committed to their clients since the firm was founded nearly 100 years ago, we have always been aware of our responsibility as legal entrepreneurs.
The law, our raison d’être, is a structuring tool for economic and social life and the warrant of public liberties and respect for each person in their diversity.
We bear this responsibility and this ambition collectively. They are embodied today in our “Involvement Strategy”.
It is a self-labeling approach based on strong commitments, tangible actions and stimulating achievements, the 3 main lines of which are:
«Because sustainable development requires deep changes in our behavior, we are carrying out an ambitious program to collectively reduce our ecological footprint.»
We are committed to 7 daily eco-actions:
- We use gobies and carafes of tap water every day.
- We deposit all our waste in our selective recycling bins.
- We control our paper printing volume.
- We control our energy consumption.
- We favor local suppliers to reduce the environmental impact of transportation.
- We reduce CO2 emissions by limiting travel.
- We limit our water consumption.
To mobilize all our teams and monitor the implementation of these commitments, the EcoJeantet group has been working internally for 3 years to monitor and develop this commitment to the environment.
«Our commitment to the well-being and development of everyone’s skills is based on 5 main principles: equality, respect, involvement, consideration and high standards, and is part of our support program.»
Every day, we promote actions related to the 3 priorities we have set in terms of social responsibility:
- Getting involved for the respect and development of everyone:
Our firm is first and foremost a team of men and women who share the same vision of the legal profession and the same ambition for their clients. We want to make the work of our lawyers and staff meaningful every day. We know that the professional development of each individual is the main driver of collective success.
- Acting for parity, promoting talent and career management:
Since its creation, our firm has promoted diversity and has implemented measures to fight against all forms of discrimination in hiring and career development. We do not tolerate any inappropriate behavior and are particularly attentive to gender parity which we are promoting with our “Jeantet Women” program.
- Involving associates in the firm’s projects and development:
We encourage teamwork in our coworking spaces, the creation of work groups and promote dialogue with the firm’s management.
Our training, our profession, our experience make us experts committed to the success of our clients. We also want to share our expertise with those who are not in the habit of or unable to use lawyers.
«We want our pro bono activities to become an integral part of the training of our young associates.»
Our associates share our values, they demand and even drive the development of our pro bono actions. To encourage this involvement, each of them has 40 hours per year to devote to pro bono initiatives.
Jeantet’s pro bono group, which is made up of young associates and counsels, organizes its initiatives around two major themes: the defense of human rights and the support of young entrepreneurs.
