Watermark Charitable Efforts

Our vision as a firm is to not only be excellent employment lawyers but to also serve and impact our local community – and beyond.

We do this in myriad ways, which include using the profit of the firm to reinvest back into the local and international community.

The vehicle through which we do this work – is the Watermark Charitable Efforts.

Through this foundation, we partner with and support a range of causes and projects that promote justice, equality and the flourishing of human life.

The founding members believed that people in distress had the right to medical intervention and these rights transcended national borders. They also felt that they had a duty to speak out about injustice, even though it might offend host governments. Today MSF is in 88 countries having treated almost 900 000 patients.
