Diversity & Inclusion


Our approach & impact

Diversity & Inclusion

As part of our ongoing efforts to promote diversity in leadership roles, we have made a commitment to implement the Mansfield Rule in our US and UK offices. This rule, administered by Diversity Lab, encourages participating law firms to consider a minimum of 30% underrepresented candidates for lateral hiring, senior leadership positions, and business development initiatives. We take great pride in having again obtained Mansfield certification in the US and Mansfield Plus certification in the UK.

Celebrating difference has become one of the four key values at Clyde & Co (Annex 1), highlighting the significance we place on diversity and inclusion across the firm. We continue to make sustainable and meaningful progress by investing in enhancing diversity and acting inclusively. Following the creation of the Global Diversity & Inclusion Steering Committee, we have continued to evolve our strategic priorities and we also introduced ambitious goals to hold ourselves accountable. Our goals are designed to increase female representation in our partnership, in key leadership positions and on decision-making bodies.
