Diversity Statement 2021
We treat everyone equally and with the same attention, courtesy and respect regardless of:
- marital status
- race, racial group, colour, ethnic origin or nationality
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
- working pattern
We are opposed to all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination. We seek to promote equality of treatment and opportunity in employment. We avoid unlawful discrimination in our dealings with each other, our clients and third parties. Selection for employment, promotion, training, or any other benefit is on the basis of individual aptitude and ability.
We are a signatory to the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
We are continuing to focus our efforts on encouraging the clear aspirations of women and working parents and continuing our policy of flexible working. We conduct firm-wide diversity training on a 2 yearly basis.
We regularly collect diversity data to allow us to monitor progress on our diversity and inclusion initiatives.
We set out below an extract from our diversity data collected in July 2021, which has been anonymised to protect the identity of individuals. The data reflects those participants who took part in the collection exercise.
