Being a diverse and inclusive firm is at the heart of our brand touchstone. We are passionate about the benefits of diversity and inclusion both from our people and a business perspective and it is this commitment that helped us to win the “most diverse firm 2015” award from the Black Solicitors Network and a highly commended award for our “inclusive recruitment” by the ENEI in 2016. As part of our diversity strategy, we work closely with a number of diversity charities and organisations and this includes being a Stonewall Diversity Champion and a lead sponsor of the Vital Women of the Year Awards.
In addition we have an active Diversity and Inclusion Committee who run a varied social programme of events throughout the year aimed at raising awareness of diversity and inclusion topics – so far this has included EID, Diwali, Chinese New Year, LGBT history month and many more!
As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are also the first regional law firm to adopt contextualised recruitment for our graduate recruitment.
