Diversity Survey 2021


Firms regulated by the SRA are required to collect report and publish workforce diversity data annually. DFA Law LLP carried out a survey in July 2021.

Our survey response rate was just under 68%. As a result we believe the results do not reliably represent our staff as a whole. Furthermore, the data we are able to publish is limited to ensure compliance with the ICO’s code of practice and data protection principles. The results that we are able to publish are as follows:

The percentage of our workforce who completed the survey:

Partners/members      83%
Solicitors                      50%
Other legal staff          50%
Legal Secretaries         80%
