The Caring Company Logo is awarded to private companies and organisations which demonstrate good corporate citizenship and have satisfied two out the six criteria: Volunteering, Employee friendly, Employing the vulnerable, Caring for the environment, Mentoring and Giving.

"We are greatly honoured by this award," said Elaine Lo, Chairman of Mayer Brown's Asia Board and Senior Partner of JSM. "We are committed to the communities in the markets in which we operate. The award of the Caring Company Logo affirms and recognises our involvement with charities and our work in those communities. It represents the firm's efforts to fulfil our corporate citizenship role by committing to our community at large, a firm value which we will continue to uphold."
