Diversity Data Collection
Law firms are required by our regulators, the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) to collect and report workforce diversity data every two years. As part of this, we are required to publish our workforce diversity data on our website. You can view a summary of our 2021 diversity data below.
The data collected from everyone at the firm must be reported to the SRA, broken down by role categories.
The data includes:
- Information about a person’s role, ownership and supervisory responsibilities
- Information about a person’s protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010
- Information about socio economic factors (education) and caring responsibilities
