Simmons & Simmons recognised as top UK firm for lesbians gays and bisexuals
Simmons & Simmons has been recognised as the UK's top law firm for lesbians, gays and bisexuals, and 19th place overall, in Stonewall's 2011 ranking of top employers.
Seven law firms made it into the top 100 employers this year, including Pinsent Masons (30th place) Hogan Lovells (at 42nd place), Baker & MacKenzie (45th place), Herbert Smith (50th place), Eversheds (72nd place) and Irwin Mitchell (93rd place).
A spokesman for Simmons & Simmons said "we are very proud to participate in Stonewall’s comprehensive index. It is great to see seven law firms ranked in the top 100 LGB-friendly employers - law can indeed be a welcoming workplace for members of the LGB community, whether fee earners or business services staff".
