2016

"Gets a bad rap for gender diversity and it is noticeably male dominant in the partnership but I don't think that's a cultural issue. We have a huge emphasis on LGBT inclusion."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm is very supportive of LGBT events as well as hosting social mobility events."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has increased its flexible working and diversity events."
Second year trainee, London
"There is an awareness about diversity and efforts to improve diversity statistics. The firm is trying to become more flexible and to initiate more conversations about how to make the firm more diverse."
Second year trainee, London
"I have been part of the LGBT network at Taylor Wessing as a straight ally and it has been great to be involved in that way. The women's network has also provided some interesting talks through my time here."
Second year trainee, London
"There are a number of diversity initiatives at the firm and there appears to be a real commitment to these."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has an active equality programme, with both LGBT and women in business initiatives. The firm is mindful of childcare needs and many solicitors work flexibly around these needs. Maternity and paternity leave are both good. The firm also does a lot of work around social mobility."
Second year trainee, London

2015

"There has been a big focus on diversity in the firm, with women in business events, and a new scheme called LGBT allies. There has also been a new focus on agile working to help people with children and other commitments."
First year trainee, London
"I think the firm is quite committed to diversity initiatives, although as is the case in most City firms, there is an under representation of ethnic minorities and women at high levels."
First year trainee, London
"Diversity is moving in the right direction at the firm but there is still a way to go."
Second year trainee, London
"There is a lot going on at the firm at the moment in relation to getting women into more senior roles and this is something, as a female, I feel fairly confident about. There are other initiatives, such as LGBT allies which almost feel redundant, because it is such a friendly and inclusive place to work."
First year trainee, London

2014

"There is only one female equity partner, which is not good enough in my opinion. It's attitude towards all other diversity I think is very good."
Second year trainee, London
"Generally the firm has a good commitment to diversity but still has a poor track record on making women up to the partnership. Women tend to be made Special Counsel rather than Partner."
First year trainee, London
"Good female to male trainee ratio, although this is not reflective of the partners as yet, with the vast majority being male."
First year trainee, London
