Duncan Lewis Solicitors

Work 020 7923 4020

Duncan Lewis Solicitors is dedicated to recruiting the most talented employees, regardless of gender, ethnicity or background. With 63% of the workforce female and nearly 60% coming from an ethnic minority background, the company is proud of its commitment to equal opportunities and having a workforce that best serves its communities.

As a signatory to the Law Society’s Diversity & Inclusion Charter, Duncan Lewis is committed to achieving best practice in recruitment, retention and career progression within the firm. We have long been devoted to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion and we provide services to clients across London and throughout England and Wales in a manner which empaces and encourages equal opportunities. This is achieved by recruiting and retaining diverse talent, understanding and delivering our service based on the needs of clients while supporting the communities served by the firm.

Our Pro Bono Committee was established in 2009 to ensure that much needed legal assistance and advice is widely accessible. Since its launch, the Committee has provided local communities, notably in London, Birmingham and Cardiff, with essential pro bono services by holding clinics and undertaking work that assists vulnerable individuals seeking practical legal advice and assistance. In doing so, the firm seeks to protect the most vulnerable in society, and to uphold the strand of the rule of law which requires that justice be universally accessible and available.

Duncan Lewis’ initiatives impact on countless others in localities outside the direct reach of the firm’s panches including communities where language and cultural barriers often make access to mainstream legal services problematic.

In the last 12 months, Duncan Lewis has been shortlisted for a number of awards for its diversity and inclusion efforts. These include;

  • The Access to Justice Award at the UK Diversity Legal Awards 2018
  • The Outstanding Multi-cultural/BAME Employee Network Award at the UK Diversity Legal Awards 2018
  • Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion Award at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2018
