Heidi Nash-Smith Announced 2018 Pro Bono Partner of the Year
Heidi Nash Smith, partner at W+K, has been awarded the prestigious Lawyers Weekly ‘Pro Bono Partner of The Year’ Award last Friday evening.
Chosen from an exceptional list of pro bono candidates, Heidi has been responsible for growing the W+K pro bono program from 12 lawyers to 68 this year, which accounts for more than half of the firm’s lawyer workforce. Targeting the most marginalised groups in the community, the collective volunteered hours are focused on refugee case work, senior’s rights, and supporting self represented litigants with these hours increasing by 67.5% over the past year.
Congratulations Heidi who is pictured above with fellow W+K partner, Karen Jones at the awards dinner.
