Albany-founded HHG Legal Group launched its Giving Back program at a sundowner event last Thursday.

HHG Giving Back is the charitable arm of the legal firm which has committed to provide a minimum of $100,000 a year and pro bono work to four WA charities, including $25,000 to the Albany Community Foundation.

Also announced on the night was the decision to open its Albany office every Saturday morning from July 1 as a free legal clinic for residents "falling through the cracks".

"There has always been a need for it, and now the Federal Government has slashed funding for the Albany Community Legal Centre, the need has become even more pronounced," he said.

Mr Creek said he hoped HHG's philanthropic work would be an inspiration for other local businesses to give back.

Albany Community Foundation vice-chairman Jeremy Stewart said it was positive to see HHG Legal Group supporting Albany's not-for-profit sector.

Mr Stewart said the foundation had raised more than $130,000 in its first year, with $42,000 distributed to the community to date.

"We are getting more and more applications for assistance through a wide level of organisations," he said.

"That support from HHG will go towards much-needed support for people in the local community."
