Charitable Outreach Events
We have contributed to various charitable outreach events, and in particular, target one major project each year, to provide tangible help. Thomas Philip currently supports Light Up Borneo's efforts in bringing sustainable electricity to Sabah and Sarawak's vast interior, where between a quarter and a third of the rural communities do not have electricity. Access to power is the starting point towards better access to information, education, healthcare and economic growth.
Legal Education & Advocacy Training
We strongly support the development of our future lawyers and regularly sponsor book prizes and advocacy-related activities at several law schools. We have been the lead sponsor of the Thomas Philip Novice Arbitration Moot Competition (NAMCO) since 2014.
Pro-Bono & Public Interest Litigation
Thomas Philip has acted in a number of major public interest cases involving inquests, freedom of information, discrimination on grounds of race, religion or gender, and on behalf of disadvantaged communities facing eviction through land acquisition.
