This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Nearly five years ago, a heavily pregnant Yolande Beckles marched into Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and told Hugh Crisp that his firm was suffering for its failure to recruit non-white, non-privileged trainees.

Today, Beckles commands a staff of 15, and Global Graduates is branching into banking, museums and the arts.
Beckles’ system gives students from non-traditional backgrounds job interview training and advice about dress, speech and etiquette.
And Beckles’ finishing school is winning fans across the City. Graduates have won training contracts in a range of top UK firms, and last year a host of law firms signed up to the Global Graduates Statement of Intent on diversity.
