We play an active role in Pride each year, sponsoring and marching in the Bristol and Edinburgh Pride parade and taking part in the festival itself. We are also proud sponsors of Trans Pride South West. Within our firm BProud is our well established LGBT+ network, welcoming both LGBT+ members and allies to promote LGBT+ inclusion across the firm. 

Our people, who come from all kinds of backgrounds, are our greatest asset. And we’re committed to nurturing, inspiring and encouraging them every step of the way. Not only are we a Disability Confident employer and supporter of CIPD’s Flex From 1st Campaign, we’re proud to be one of the Top 75 UK employers for social mobility – and were one of Stonewall’s Top 25 law firms in 2020 too. With a range of employee-led networks that promote diversity and inclusion across the firm, we pride ourselves on fostering a culture that welcomes everyone and celebrates different perspectives and backgrounds. After all, we know it’s what makes us stronger.
