As part of our continuing commitment in this area, we collect data on diversity and equality and provide it to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) which is published anonymously and aggregated across the profession. For more information on this please see the SRA Website at http://www.sra.org.uk/diversitydata/#7 where the 2012 report can be downloaded, or the full data set obtained.

As we are a small firm we follow SRA guidance not to publish our own internal diversity and equality data to avoid the risk of publishing data which may allow any individual to be identified, and thereby protecting the privacy of all employees.
