Equality & Diversity

Committed to promoting equality and diversity

Our Commitment

Equality and diversity in our relations with clients

  • We will treat our clients fairly and equally at all times
  • We will not unlawfully discriminate against our clients
  • We are generally free to decide whether to accept instructions from any particular client. Where we decide not to accept instructions, this will not be based on any protected characteristics
  • We will take steps to ensure that we meet the diverse needs of our clients. Where necessary, we will devise procedures to deliver services that meet specific needs arising from clients’ ethnic or cultural background, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation, disabilities, age or other relevant factors. We will do so only where this is permitted by the relevant anti-discrimination legislation
  • We will take seriously any complaint of discrimination by or on behalf of a client and act promptly to investigate.
