At DunnCox, we embrace our responsibility as a good corporate citizen to the downtown Kingston community, in which the head office of the firm is located, and to the wider Jamaican society. We frequently lend support to the meaningful projects and activities undertaken by a number of organizations, groups and service clubs. In particular, those projects that focus on improving the lives of the youth are very special to the DunnCox team.
For many years, the firm provided material support for a day-care centre serving the downtown community. During 2003, we decided to expand our outreach programme to help meet the pressing educational and recreational needs of the children resident in the immediate environs of the Kingston office.

As a firm, DunnCox is committed to providing service of the highest standard to business clients. This, however, does not in any way prevent our attorneys from engaging in pro bono activities. DunnCox continues to be in favour of pro bono work and supports those attorneys who participate in such endeavours. Over the years, our Attorneys have undertaken to provide legal advice and service to projects and programmes of varying sizes and national importance. Individuals have also been recipients of the pro bono efforts of the firm’s attorneys.
Our pro bono activities include national programmes such as the Employee Share Ownership Programme and representation in the Court of Appeal of legally aided appellants.
