Black Lives Matter

In the wake of the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and many more in the Black community, Chambers and Partners is deeply saddened by the extent of the injustices impacting the Black community and we express our commitment to standing up for change within the legal profession. We call upon the global legal profession to collaborate with us to ensure we tackle discrimination and racism in a meaningful way.

We are taking positive action within our organisation by holding regular focus group sessions for our diverse colleagues by consulting with them to ensure any future actions taken as a company are focused and effective. These sessions also provide our colleagues with a visible platform to share experiences, thoughts and suggestions with our senior leadership team. We are also actively focusing on the attraction, retention and promotion of our diverse talent.

We have rolled out company-wide D&I training for our research teams and senior leadership team and we will continue to have an open and honest discussions in our workplace on race, ethnicity, gender, LGBT+, disability, mental health and wellbeing, age, parents and carers, and social mobility.

We have introduced D&I statistics in our research process and we are implementing further measures to ensure our research is as inclusive as possible and truly representative of the legal profession.  In the meantime, we will continue to promote equality and access to justice and fully commit to tackling discrimination and racism through our unique position in the legal profession.
