Chubb is committed to the advancement and preservation of the rule of law. Through the Fund, Chubb supports organizations and activities that promote conditions conducive to the rule of law, including:

  • The development of rules-based legal systems, with an independent and knowledgeable judiciary, capable of facilitating modern economic activity
  • The elimination of systemic public and private corruption
  • The restoration or preservation of safety and security in daily life, free from arbitrary violence or widespread civil disorder
  • The free flow of information and transparency in the administration of laws and regulations
  • Meaningful access to, and adequate representation in, civil and criminal proceedings

The Fund, which began in 2008 as a program for Chubb’s Legal and Compliance Group, is now a global corporate commitment, reflecting the importance of the rule of law to our company, our employees, our customers and our communities.
