We are committed to promoting equality at every opportunity, both as a provider of services and as an employer. We ensure diversity within the firm by actively recruiting, developing and promoting a diverse group of employees based on individual merit, qualities and performance. We aim to create an inclusive environment in which each person is valued as a key part of our culture and a critical factor in our ability to provide quality service to our clients.
The Legal Services Act 2007 specifies a regulatory objective to 'encourage a strong, independent, diverse and effective legal profession' within firms that supply reserved legal services such as probate. A diversity questionnaire was sent to all workers in November 2017.
The Equalities and Human Rights Commission states it is important that we do not breach workers' confidentiality, or reveal anything which might enable someone to work out information about another person which was provided in confidence. For this reason the results of the returned questionnaires are not shown here. However, the results have been submitted to the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) and will be included within their national published results.
