Shoosmiths takes top spot in UK diversity ranking
Shoosmiths is the most ethnically- and gender-diverse law firm, according to the annual Black Solicitors Network’s Diversity League Table, which is sponsored by The Law Society. Linklaters has come in at second place while O’Melveny & Myers finished third. Last year’s league table saw Linklaters in the top spot, followed by Baker & McKenzie and Norton Rose.
The annual table looks at ethnicity and gender diversity in legal firms and chambers across different levels of practice, as well as the representation of disabled and lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) employees in firms.
Honourable mention also goes to Withers, which has the highest proportion of female partners at 41.94 per cent.
