Simmons & Simmons voted most gay-friendly law firm
Simmons & Simmons has taken out top honours for a fourth year running in the ratings for the most gay-friendsly law firm. The rating, conducted by charity organisation Stonewall ranks a range of corporations and firms.
Simmons remains at the top of the profession and managed a personal best in the overall ranking by coming in at 10th place (up from 19th last year). Six other firms made the top 100: Baker & McKenzie(19), Irwin Mitchell(33), Pinsent Masons(41), Hogan Lovells (62), Eversheds (73) and Herbert Smith (80).
A spokesperson for Simmons said the firm was delighted, but stressed that there was much more to be done, particularly in the firm’s international offices, to ensure that the workplace was free of discrimination.
