This professional wowed our judges with extensive examples of initiatives and efforts to raise her voice to help implement lasting change across the legal sector. She has developed impressive models to develop and advance women and address the barriers that so many women face in this field. She believes passionately in diversity and that diverse teams get better results. It has been the foundation on which she has built the teams, which have more than 40% female partners. The London office was ranked #3 for diversity in the City (2020), #1 in the U.K for representation of LGBTQ+ lawyers and partners (2021), and is one of the top 5 firms with the most UK female partners (2021). She has not only been phenomenally successful as a litigator, working her way up to the top, but she has spent her career promoting equality and championing those around her. She is driving a much-needed shift in the firm and wider legal sector.
