In accordance with SRA guidance, 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 We do not publish data which might enable individuals to be identified.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. On this occasion, around 55% of staff chose to complete the survey. In addition to the information shown here, the full set of responses is passed to the SRA (our regulatory body) to allow them to monitor the diversity of the legal profession as a whole.
The data shown relates to a survey carried out in 2023. The survey included questions about individual roles within the firm.
Staff were also asked about their age and gender
And about their own, and their parents' education.
Participants were also asked about their race, sexual orientation and gender identity, disability, and caring responsibilities. We have not published those details as doing so might allow participants to be indivdually identified.
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 relating to recruitment and internal promotions, all of which are based solely on merit.
