Equality and diversity
Shepherd and Wedderburn is committed to the principles of promoting equality of opportunity as well as recognising and valuing diversity within the firm. As an employer and a professional services firm we are committed to working towards creating and developing conditions whereby staff and partners are selected and trained on the basis of their abilities, capabilities and potential regardless of race or racial group (including colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins); sex; gender reassignment; pregnancy and maternity; marriage and civil partnership status; sexual orientation; religion or belief; age; or disability (together the "Protected Characteristics"; individually a "Protected Characteristic"). It is against our policy and the law for our staff and partners in their professional dealings with the firm's staff, partners, other lawyers, clients or third parties to unlawfully discriminate against any person, or victimise or harass them because of a Protected Characteristic. Shepherd and Wedderburn is committed to taking such steps, and making such adjustments, as are reasonable in all the circumstances in order to prevent any of our staff, partners or clients who are disabled from being placed at a substantial disadvantage in comparison with those who are not disabled. The firm also seeks to attain a workforce that is representative of the communities from which our organisation is drawn.
