Diversity and Inclusion Statement

This firm is committed to the principles of equity and inclusion.  

We value the diversity of our base in London and recognise the attributes that an inclusive workforce can bring. This is reflected in our approach to diversity and inclusion as we seek to ensure we maintain an environment where we champion respect, dignity and enriched with unique experiences, perspectives and talents that each individual brings to our firm.  

We recognise the importance of staff wellbeing, both physically and mentally. We encourage staff to be themselves, have a healthy work, life balance, and offer flexible working patterns that enable our colleagues to pursue their legal career, enjoy family life and their other passions. We believe that a diverse and inclusive environment cultivates a dynamic and enriching workplace to deliver an empowering environment for our workforce and ultimately the best outcome for our clients.  

We endeavour to ensure that our recruitment practices continue to be fair as possible, and have taken active steps to ensure that our recruitment processes are inclusive and free from bias.   

Policies 

We do not discriminate on the grounds of sex, age, race, marital status, pregnancy and maternity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, expression or reassignment, religion or belief. We have policies in place to reflect this stance, and to support our colleagues with our commitment to equity and inclusion. These are reviewed regularly and amended as necessary to reflect the evolving legal and societal landscapes.  

Data
