"Diversity with respect to women and LGBT is very good. There are a large number of female partners and many female associates. Diversity with respect to ethnic minorities could be better, although this is an area where the firm is trying to improve."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm has committees in most of these areas that are actively trying to ensure that these issues are at the forefront of people's minds. I cannot comment on any specific issues because I have not experienced any."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is small but we have a good quota of LGBT trainees and partners (around 20% of trainees and at least 10% of partners, two of whom are married to each other). There is an internal LGBT group called the Turing Network (named after Alan Turing) but, as we are a smaller firm, we collaborate with other firms as part of the LeGal BesT network. The firm has a few different projects related to social mobility but I have heard from colleagues that maternity pay could be substantially improved."

"I have many female and LGBT colleagues. The recruitment committee are very alive to this issue."
First year trainee, London
"There is an active commitment to respecting diversity in all fields. I do think more could be done in terms of social mobility, although this is a comment about the legal profession generally rather than my firm specifically."
First year trainee, London
"Bristows works with a diversity charity and holds several events. It also had one of the first female managing partners in a City law firm, I think. Many of the equity partners are female."
Second year trainee, London
"There is an LGBT network and we collaborate with other firms because of our size."
London
"One of the most diverse firms in terms of male/female ratios (including on the partnership level) and with a proactive LGBT recruitment policy."
First year trainee, London
"Lots of emphasis on diversity, regular events and initiatives. A section of our induction was dedicated to the firm's approach to diversity."
