Diversity Survey 2015


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 2015, and from the data,  which was gathered electronically produced an aggregated survey report in September 2015.

Our survey response rate was just under 54%. 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 follow

Partners/members      57%
Solicitors                     63%
