As part of our commitment to equality and diversity, both as a firm and as a profession, FDC Law collects and publishes data relating to the diversity of our partners and staff. We do not publish data which might enable individuals to be identified.
The data is collected anonymously and on a voluntary basis from our partners and staff and in addition to the information shown here, is passed to the SRA (our regulatory body) to allow them to monitor the diversity of the legal profession as a whole.
In 2015, 68% of our staff completed the diversity survey.The survey included questions about individual roles within the firm. Participants were also asked about their education, their gender and sexual identity, disability and caring responsibilities.
As a firm, we continue to monitor diversity. The information we have collected suggests that the diversity of our partners and staff reflects that of the communities within which we work.
We operate strict non-discrimination policies both internally, and in recruiting staff, and make decisions based solely on merit.
