The legal profession’s wider responsibilities
We share a commitment to the legal profession’s wider responsibilities to society.
Everyone at Matrix is committed to a public service ethos including to publicly funded work (including for public authorities), public interest litigation and, where appropriate, unpaid work, all of which has equal esteem with private client work.
A democratic structure
All Members of Matrix have an equal say in the running of the organisation.
