From January 2014 the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) introduced a mandatory requirement for all firms that it regulates, and in an attempt to ensure that the profession is suitably diverse and/or that firms consider diversity when recruiting staff. Each firm is required to collect, report and publish diversity data.
New South Law Limited is committed to the principles of equality and diversity. We value the diversity of our colleagues, our clients and the third parties with whom we work. We seek to create an environment where everyone feels included and valued for their unique characteristics, skills and abilities and supported in their needs and responsibilities.
