Diversity and equality

Diversity & Equality

Our approach is centred on two key facets:

The belief that when people can truly be themselves at work, they will perform at the highest levels,

Diversity has as many different facets as there are people, and must never be seen as simply an “initiative”.

The firms’ history means that whilst we are continually building and deepening our activity, we have, and will continue to, focus on bringing openness in all our business activities so it is simply “how we do things around here”.  The commitment to achieving this is unrelenting and a priority.

We’re building our firm to be made up of a diverse team of individuals which reflects the modern working world and our clients. Recognising that inspiration often comes from others, we’re delighted to be legal partners to Commonwealth Games England (CGE).  CGE is a multi-sport, para and able bodied, wholly inclusive and encompassing ages from teenage to 70. Working with CGE epitomises our belief that a diverse team, with no barriers can achieve true excellence.
