Equality and Diversity at our Firm

We survey our staff periodically in relation to equality and diversity and we also are under an obligation to report out survey findings to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) at their request (usually between every 1-2 years). The SRA collate all diversity data from law firms and publish their findings on their website.

The results from our latest survey are below.
