  • 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 2009 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.

“Chubb, like so many other companies, enters into important contractual commitments every day, and the reliability of those commitments depends upon the maintenance of strong legal systems marked by impartiality, efficiency, equal access and enforceability. The Chubb Rule of Law Fund projects supported by the Chubb Charitable Foundation and our law firm partners are important because they help ensure access to justice, strengthen legal institutions and encourage the fair application of just laws.”
