Leading Australian law firm Slater and Gordon is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival as a corporate partner, celebrating the Year of the Dragon at the festival launch.
Slater and Gordon General Manager, Hayden Stephens, said that the firm was proud to be a corporate partner of the festival program and the firm was looking forward to attending many of the activities over the coming weeks.
“We’re extremely proud to support the Chinese New Year Festival, which is the biggest Lunar New Year Celebration outside Asia,” Mr Stephens said.
“Slater and Gordon has a proud history of helping many people from culturally diverse backgrounds with their legal needs.
“Our Multilingual Legal Helpline can give families from several different backgrounds access to legal information in many languages.
“The ‘We Speak Your Language’ program launched in 2010 was designed to improve our own cultural awareness and to better serve the needs of people from non-English speaking and culturally diverse backgrounds.
“And with over 33 different languages spoken by Slater and Gordon employees, non-English speaking people should feel comfortable knowing they will be able to speak to someone who understands them.
“This sponsorship represents our ongoing commitment to work with cultural communities and to celebrate their contribution to Australia,” he said.
