Committed to an inclusive workplace

We have a clear Diversity and Equal Opportunities Policy in place and it applies to all aspects of recruitment, employment, promotion and training.

Part of this is providing an inclusive work environment where everyone has the opportunity to succeed; and making sure there are no obstacles based on sexual orientation, disability, age, gender, marital status, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, pregnancy and maternity, religious or philosophical belief.

Freeths are a diversity champion for stonewall

Going further

Of course, ensuring compliance with the law is vital but we want to do more than that. We promote equality of opportunity for fee earning and non-fee earning staff, as well as for those who apply for employment to Freeths. Individuals are selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their abilities and merits and the needs of the firm.

National recognition

Our aim is to attract and retain the most talented people, and part of this is providing a great place to work. So, to support fairness and equality and to encourage a healthy work-life balance, we continually monitor and improve our benefits. We are proud that what we have achieved has been recognised over the past few years.

A policy in action

We do not stop there. Our policy of non-discrimination applies just as much to accepting clients' instructions, providing our services and appointing counsel and other experts as it does to employment matters.
