Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP has launched a new initiative designed to promote diversity among the barristers that the firm recommends to clients and instructs in matters. The diversity initiative, recently announced on Freshfields’ website on 16 July 2019, aims to ensure that Freshfields lawyers develop connections with a broad range of diverse barristers and to encourage barrister chambers to present a more diverse bench.
This programme is the latest in a series of diversity initiatives launched by Freshfields. These initiatives include the Every Day Gender Equality (EDGE) commitment, which aims to empower people to take actions that will improve gender equality. Freshfields is also well known for its involvement in the Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge (The Pledge).
