Equality and Diversity at LCF Law

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity within LCF Law. In addition as we are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) , under the SRA rules we are required to collect and publish our workforce diversity data.

None of our employees are obliged to provide their diversity data, but those that do, do so by filling out an online survey which maintains their anonymity.

The results of the 2017 survey are outlined below.
