"As a woman I have found all of the men to be extremely respectful and have not encountered any issues with sexism. The firm are also very supportive of working parents allowing them to work flexible hours to suit childcare needs."
Second year trainee, Sheffield
"I have never witnessed any form of discrimination against any type of person in my three and a half years here. Indeed there are more women than men in this office, and the firm as a whole has a respectable number of female partners. I have colleagues from various ethnic backgrounds and from the LGBT community. Maternity and paternity leave is never frowned upon."
First year trainee, Chelmsford

Second year trainee, London
"Most of the fee earners in my team are women, so I don't think are any problems here with gender diversity."
First year trainee, London
"I think the firm's diversity is very good, especially in the new generation, NQ's and solicitors."
