Equality and Diversity

Like our clients, we embrace diversity, and we employ staff from a range of educational and cultural backgrounds. Where possible, our staff work flexibly. We support The Law Society’s commitment to securing a more diverse and inclusive legal profession.

We regularly monitor diversity within the firm. The results of our most recent annual review process (based on the number of respondents) showed that 57% are female, while 22% come from ethnic minorities. We have a very broad range of employees across the age groups, 50% of which are between 25 and 44 years of age, but 13% are 55 years or older.

Our employees also come from a mix of educational backgrounds, with almost one-fifth attending school outside the UK while 51% attended UK state schools.

In accordance with the definition of the Equality Act, 5% of staff report having a disability. Just over 10% of our staff has carer responsibilities for a child, and 5% spends between one and 19 hours per week providing help or support to family members, friends, neighbours or others because of either long-term physical or mental ill-health / disability or problems related to old age.
