Inclusion & Diversity - Boodle Hatfield

Your lawyers since 1722

Inclusion and Diversity


We have 180 staff, including 36 Partners in our offices in London and Oxford. Our teams are made up of talented well-qualified people. We are committed to investing in their development, providing them with the training and experience that they need to ensure rewarding careers and to deliver the first-class service our clients expect from us and which we strive to provide.

We are not a faceless organisation –  we are renowned for our friendly, informal atmosphere and the pleasant working conditions in our offices. Our size means that we all know each person in the firm. This facilitates strong team work and a highly collegiate approach to each other and our clients.

Diversity & inclusiveness

We are fully committed to maintaining a working environment in which all people can excel. The firm has a philosophy of advancement by merit and has robust policies and an inclusive and supportive culture to enable this.

In recognition of the firm’s distinctive female leadership, long-standing culture of gender equality and strong management team, the firm was awarded the Exceptional Achievement by a Firm prize at Managing Partners’ Forum Awards 2020. Our Senior Partner is a woman and over half of the Equity Partners are female.

Our Wellbeing programme for staff underpins our firm belief that a firm’s greatest asset is its staff. This ethos coupled with a programme of regular talks, events and training ensures that staff are able to thrive in a supportive workplace and develop their careers effectively.

We have an increasingly diverse workforce and we intend to continue to build on this success. To find out more, review the Boodle Hatfield Diversity Statistics 2023.
