Freeths celebrates diversity

Leading law firm and Bondholder Freeths LLP is celebrating its achievements at the UK Diversity Legal Awards.

The awards dinner took place at the Grand Tower Bridge Hotel in London and the company ranked first place in the diversity league table, resulting in Freeths receiving the award for Best Firm 2015.

Freeths was up against several international law firms and firms with a significant presence in London.

Colin Flanagan, Chairman of Freeths, commented: "This is a real step up the league table for Freeths, and a testament to the work of our diversity and inclusion committee over the past year. We have worked hard on a range of initiatives including launching a new diversity strategy, embedding our equality policies, and delivering unconscious bias training to all staff. This award helps take us closer to achieving our vision of an inclusive workplace where individuality and diversity are celebrated and where fairness is valued as a key strength of the firm.”
