Social Responsibility

The MH Social Programme was created in 2014 to support initiatives, actions, pro bono activities, and apply resources to projects and institutions that help transform people’s lives. We have triggered the social protagonism of our employees and we have sought to create opportunities to build a better society.

In 2017, the programme received the Lumen Award, created by two of the most important associations of law firms in Brazil (“Centro de Estudos das Sociedades de Advogados – CESA” and “Sindicato das Sociedades de Advogados dos Estados de São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro – SINSA”). The award gives value to great undertakings promoted by law firms in the area of social responsibility projects and pro bono activities.

The project, designed by students of the Business Course of ESAG/UDESC in 2013, sought to improve the conditions of the children participating in the sports activities of the Athletic Association named “Vento Sul”, captained by the athlete Geneci Salvadengo. The institution is located in an area of risk in the central region of Florianópolis and seeks, through sport, specially running, to ward off children and adolescents from drugs and crime.

The institution named “Educandário Santa Catarina” is located in the metropolitan area of Florianópolis and has 75 years of community work, serving more than 540 children in situation of vulnerability and social risk. The firm has worked with the institution since 2014, sponsoring its main events and providing resources for the improvement of its facilities.
