Simmons & Simmons

Equal opportunities and diversity

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is set out in the firm’s five year Business Plan and is an integral part of the firm’s culture and the way in which we do business.

We strive to maintain a supportive and inclusive working environment where partners and employees feel able and encouraged to be themselves and maximise their potential, regardless of their background. We focus our activities on three key strands: gender diversity, LGBT equality and BAME equality. We are pleased to have been recognised for our commitment to diversity & inclusion in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women six times and to have achieved Stonewall Top Global Employer status for the fourth consecutive year.

Our diversity and inclusion policy reinforces our commitment to promote diversity and inclusion and prevent discrimination. This applies to our recruitment and selection practices, terms and conditions of employment including pay and benefits, promotion, training, every other aspect of interaction while at work.

Everyone, including contractors and anyone who works on site, prospective recruits and visitors is treated fairly and with dignity and respect.
