(based on 12 ratings in 2015)

2015

"While the ratio of women to men is not the best it could be at the firm, there is very well publicised and accessible diversity committee, so it is clearly a priority within the company."
First year trainee, London
"While the diversity could be improved at the firm, information regarding diversity at the firm is clearly distributed here. There are clear policies and an intention to improve diversity."
Second year trainee, London
"I believe that the firm is extremely diverse in all aspects: there is 100% retention of trainees, alongside both a good and a growing number of female partners with children."
First year trainee, London

2014

"As a gay man, I only know of one other LGBT person in the firm and he is currently on secondment. I must emphasise that, whilst the firm's diversity in this area is lacking compared to its competitors, I have never felt disadvantaged and, (unless I am not offered a position), have no intention of looking elsewhere upon qualification. LGBT issues are something which I believe is being addressed across the City right now and will inevitably improve over time. Graduate Recruitment, in particular, have made noticeable efforts by building relationships with organisations that are focused on encouraging underrepresented groups to enter the legal profession. The commitment, therefore, is there."
First year trainee, London
"This equality information is requested during application process. Lots of women staff, some are legal directors and partners. Some minorities."
First year trainee, Manchester
"There are still not many female partners; but in several departments a good attitude to associates working four-days a week."
Second year trainee, London
"There are more women than men in my intake and in the ranks of the associates and we are an ethnically diverse firm with offices around the world."
Second year trainee, London

2013

"Generally seem good; the spread of female partners seems to vary between departments, but does still seem to be smaller than the number of male partners."
First year trainee, London
"I think they are specifically working on it as we speak, and I know that a large number of partners are very supportive of women with children, but it remains the case that there are real issues with gender diversity once you get past senior associate level."
First year trainee, London
"There are lots of regional and foreign accents around the office, women constitute about half of the workforce and are entitled to generous maternity leave, and there are openly gay members of staff. There are quite a lot of staff members who attended state grammar schools and a few from the comprehensive sector."
First year trainee, London
