Diversity and Inclusion

Difference is our strength

In a rapidly changing world, attracting, retaining, and developing the very best talent is a priority for international law firms such as ours.

Our focus is to ensure the long-term sustainability of the firm through promoting the values of teamwork, inclusivity, collaboration, and transparency. We want to create clear career paths and opportunities for all by ensuring our people have the chance to develop, express their views and ideas, have the opportunity to grow and see their careers fulfilled within the firm.

We truly value our diverse workforce. Encouraging diversity of thought and drawing on different perspectives means that we can provide innovative solutions to our clients’ most complex matters.

For this reason, we’re working hard to develop a diverse pipeline of talent and we are taking action through our Global Diversity & Inclusion Strategy to help us achieve this.

You can find out more about the steps we’re taking in the stories included at the bottom of this page, as well as reading our London Office Diversity & Inclusion Statistics 2023 and our latest UK Pay Gap Report. You can also read our Pay Gap Reports for 2021 and 2020.

Celebrating difference

Our D&I Networks help us raise awareness of different backgrounds and perspectives and work with the firm to help us further develop our inclusive working environment. Each of them offers the opportunity to meet new people from across our offices and organise a range of events and activities throughout the year, which are open to all.
