Mistry Law

Dispute resolution Tier 4

Mistry Law considers equality and diversity, equality and inclusion a core objective, making every effort to eliminate discrimination, create equal opportunities and develop good working relationships with its opponents, stake holders, customers and other professionals it works with.

Mistry Law is a committed advocate of equality and diversity at the Jersey Bar.  It is our policy to treat everyone equally and fairly, regardless of their age, gender, reassignment or expression, martial or civil partnership status, political persuasion, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality or ethnic national, religious belief or background.

Diversity, Equality & Inclusion

Our commitment to equality and diversity internally means preventing discrimination, ensuring equality of opportunity, promoting diversity and supporting retention and progression of talent.

In practice, our commitment has a number of aspects.

  1. It means taking positive steps to recruit people from under-represented groups and communities if and when Mistry Law recruits.
  2. It involves being concerned to ensure that work is allocated on a fair and equal basis.
  3.  It includes removing disadvantages for staff, in order to improve equality of opportunity as far as possible, for example by: making reasonable adjustments for disabled individuals; adopting fair childbirth and parental leave policies; and giving people the freedom to work flexibly to enable individuals to manage their family responsibilities, or a disability, without having to give up work.
  4. It means continuing to monitor, develop and adapt E&D policies, anti-harassment policies and recruiting practices and keeping them under regular review.

Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is important and for Mistry Law this is best provided on issues and matters that we as lawyers can add value to society.  We regularly give free advice by providing lawyers to Jersey Citizen Advice and provide free advice to citizens who need assistance.
