Howes Percival is committed to ensuring equality and diversity in everything we do. This commitment is set out in our Equality & Diversity Policy which is available upon request.
We are also a signatory to the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter which requires us to take steps to take action to help ensure equality and diversity and carry out an annual assessment of our performance.
Graham Irons is our Equality & Diversity Partner so for further information please contact him.
The following figures relate to a confidential survey carried out by all staff and partners in relation to equality and diversity issued in May 2019 for the firm to implement its Equality and Diversity Policy, its commitment to the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Charter and to ensure compliance with the SRA’s Code.
