About Us


Diversity and Inclusion

Mishcon de Reya prides itself not only on the diverse range of legal services that it offers as a practice, but also on the diverse range of people within the firm who provide those legal services and support the business. We are proud of our ability to harness the different experiences, backgrounds and personalities of the people working here in order to create a workplace culture that we all value, and that leads us to providing the best possible service to our clients.

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of Mishcon de Reya's core values and our values contribute to making Mishcon the unique place it is. We want to ensure that we continue to be an employer of choice for individuals regardless of their age, gender, disability, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or social economic background.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee

The Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee is comprised of senior partners and directors from across the firm, and is tasked with enabling the firm to be as diverse as possible - with a stated aim to remove barriers to this wherever it can. The Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee is supported by the firm's wider Diversity & Inclusion Committee, comprised of members from across the firm.

The Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee meet on a monthly basis to:

  • Conduct appropriate and relevant research of the firm’s demographics and analyse this data;
  • Create and implement communications plans and organise events and training to promote Diversity and Inclusion across the firm;
  • Discuss and review Diversity and Inclusion topics and initiatives, and make recommendations to the Board.
