Equal

opportunities

When recruiting new people, we judge
solely on ability and regardless of gender, race, religion, disability, sex, gender identity, gender expression or sexual preference.

This has helped us to create an open, friendly firm that is a rich mix of people with different views, backgrounds and experience. We also offer the kind of flexible and agile working practices that enable our people to strike the right balance between their home and work lives. We believe this is one of the reasons why Bristows has been able to attract a far greater proportion of female fee earners than most other City law firms.

We review all our staff and employment policies annually to ensure they remain current and fair and we also look to ensure they are gender neutral and free of any bias in terms of language.
