Category: Chambers Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year
WINNER: Hardwicke Chambers
Hardwicke specialises in commercial, construction, insurance and property work.
It is a successful and innovative set with a reputation for high quality legal expertise and its excellent and approachable, business-focussed style. This is consistently recognised in the legal directories, who recently described Hardwicke as an ‘amazing chambers with gifted barristers’ and staff team who provide ‘a service far beyond other sets’.
People are at the heart of Hardwicke’s business plan and ethos. Training, motivation, recognition and reward, and a continued emphasis on providing opportunities and recruiting and retaining the best people from a wide pool are key to its success.
Hardwicke’s D&I initiatives are primarily aimed at ensuring that those that might not have the connections to or knowledge of the legal world are encouraged to consider careers in the law. As well as our own initiatives, we support our clients’ work in the same area and aim to involve as many members of chambers as possible.
