We continue to champion new ways of work that open opportunities more fairly for everyone in the law. Through programmes like our Legal Returners’ Springboard and Women Who Will initiative, we drive positive action – helping keep exceptional talent in the industry, our clients deliver better outcomes and the legal sector better reflect the diverse community it serves.
