Freshfields and Slaughter reveal more detailed pay gap data
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Slaughter and May have released gender pay gap information for their partners at the request of the UK Government’s Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy Committee (BEIS).
Meanwhile Allen & Overy has thus far refused to comply with the request. When the data was being released back in the spring, whether or not to include partners in the data seemed to be optional, but as part of the review, the BEIS Committee requested that full reports be delivered from all firms.
Freshfields’ average gender pay gap in its partnership is 19%, with a median gap of 18%. The firm’s overall gender pay gap is 60.4%. Slaughters did not release its partner gap alone, but opted just for its overall gap including partners, which was an average of 61.8% and a median of 41.6%.
