2017

"We have a diversity committee and host diversity events."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm is committed to, and makes a number of efforts to ensure, diversity. It encourages diverse participation in firm events and applications from potential trainees and associates. However, the current make up of the London office is lacking in diversity with respect to ethnic minorities and female senior counsel and partners. This is something that needs to be worked on but the firm has recognised this and is trying to improve."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm does have some diversity initiatives but it's not currently a very diverse place. The firm could be more flexible with working from home and/or reduced hours arrangements and the maternity leave package could be improved."
First year trainee, London

2016

"There is an active diversity committee that engages with the firm frequently and often organises events."
Entry level, London

2015

"While I do not feel that the issue of diversity is really applicable to me, my understanding is the firm is very good in relation to childcare/maternity leave. Ethnic minorities and LGBT probably doesn't get a huge amount of attention, in my opinion."
First year trainee, London
"The firm's women's forum meets regularly and throws events. As a female, I feel that it's a good forum to hear from other womens' experiences in the office."
First year trainee, London
"Globally, the firm is very committed to diversity. While I feel that the small size of the office could be slightly letting us down, in London there is a good effort made, and the firm definitely believes in it."
Second year trainee, London

2014

"The firm has a strong commitment to diversity at a global level. The London office, perhaps by virtue of its smaller size, is not hugely diverse, but the commitment to promote diversity is clear and sincere."
First year trainee, London
"Both the women's forum and the diversity committee are active within the firm and provide support to those who need it."
First year trainee, London
"There is a high percentage of female associates, but that figure falls dramatically at partner level. The firm has an 'equality and diversity' committee where different people can come together and show their commitment to the cause."
First year trainee, London
