Diversity & inclusion

We are an equal opportunities employer and are committed to promoting equality and diversity in all aspects of our business. We fully recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce. In 2018 we were proud to have been ranked in a list of Top 50 UK employers for inclusiveness. The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers is a definitive list of UK based organisations that promote inclusion at each level of employment within their organisation. The list represents those companies which promote all strands of diversity including age, disability, gender, LGBT, race, faith and religion.

We were also the first law firm to officially sign up to The Inclusive Behaviours in Insurance Pledge, an initiative set up by Lloyd’s of London and Zurich to demonstrate the insurance industry’s commitment to creating a “culture where inclusive behaviours become the norm and where everyone is accepting of diversity.”

For us, ensuring we have a diverse workforce isn’t about ticking a few boxes; it’s much deeper than that. It’s about creating an inclusive workplace which reflects the diverse nature of the communities in which we work. We know that embracing difference contributes positively to a flourishing workforce.

We have now published our 2018 Gender Pay Gap overview. Click here to download the report, which reflects the required reporting details, including statistics for the firm's pay and bonus gap, proportionality of male and female employees, as well as an overview of the approach we take to the wellbeing of all our employees.
