(based on 8 ratings in 2019)


"There has been a real push towards diversity recently and tackling the reasons behind lower representation in the firm. In terms of our cohort of trainees, there are quite a few people from different backgrounds and the firm is very supportive with maternity leave/flexible working for all life commitments."
Second year trainee, Nottingham
"We are very progressive when it comes to working from home and flexible working for those with families. We have recently undertaken inclusion surveys and are working to further improve inclusion in the firm."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"The firm is very big on pushing inclusion and equality and I would say it is very diverse. There is an inclusion group that works to raise awareness of events around the firm including LGBT History, Pride, Women in Law, Black History and Mental Health Awareness Week etc."
First year trainee, Nottingham


"I think the firm is doing very well when it comes to LGBT and women as there's very clear representation of diversity and 75% of our cohort are women. It could do better when it comes to ethnic minorities but it's not bad by any means. The number of people educated in state schools vastly outnumbers those from private schools. There's no nepotism here and people are hired for their achievements. It's an area I'm really proud of."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"The firm is pretty diverse. However, I'm not aware of specific policies or groups to support inclusivity. In relation to personal life balance and care commitments, the firm is amazingly flexible on working hours."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"It is great to see that, in recent years, there are more women being promoted to associate and partner. The firm has a flexible working policy that helps with our work/life balance and is great for those with children. Maternity leave can be split between parents and flexible working requests can be made to suit your personal life."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"The firm is focusing on accepting people from all backgrounds and has a strong culture of accepting and encouraging diversity in all areas."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"It's an extremely good and fair firm to work at."
Second year trainee, Nottingham


"It's gotten increasingly better as we have grown."
Second year trainee, Nottingham
"Diversity within the firm could be improved. However, equality and the treatment of everyone equally is, on the whole, very good."
Second year trainee, London
"In terms of gender ratio, I would say that there are many women in the firm, even at the higher levels (not as many as men though). They are also really good regarding maternity leave, I am told."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"The firm is working hard on this by improving the maternity, adoption and sick leave policies recently. I think the firm is quite diverse and supports people with disabilities. As the firm goes more towards agile working, it will make things easier for childcare etc but this can still be tricky for parents working full time."
Second year trainee, Birmingham
"An extremely diverse firm with opportunities to develop and progress that are open to all."
First year trainee, Nottingham
"The London office is predominantly made up of male fee earners. We also have very few employees from ethnic minorities and the LGBT community. I can't comment on the other offices."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has a really good commitment to diversity, which is visible throughout the recruitment process and evident within the office."
First year trainee, Nottingham
