Pinsent Masons is one of a select number of businesses to receive a Business in the Community Big Tick award. The awards are part of the National Awards for Excellence, the UK’s most influential, independent, peer-assessed corporate responsibility awards.

This is the fourth year that the firm's partnership with Manchester Academy has been awarded a Big Tick and the second time that the firm has been shortlisted as a National Example of Excellence. The firm has also been recognised for its long standing partnerships with St Matthew's Primary School in Birmingham and Cockburn School in Leeds.
