A Conversation About Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging

Paragon Law is as diverse as the clients we represent.

Everyone Is Welcome

This is our DNA, not a tokenistic gesture to satisfy ESG league tables. Paragon Law is minority owned and the majority of our senior leadership are women or from a BAME background. Diversity at Paragon Law has brought innovation and client satisfaction, allowing us to embrace and celebrate everyone's differences, creating an inclusive culture where all individuals can flourish and contribute their unique strengths. 

What Our Employees Say

Creating an inclusive working environment where all Paragon Law colleagues feel respected, and a sense of belonging is an integral part of our company culture. Sufficiently valuing our employees allows an enhanced way of working and cements our position as one of the UK’s leading law firms. 
We asked our colleagues to provide their thoughts on working at Paragon Law. This is what some of them said...

Andy Poole | Corporate Paralegal

“It’s great to work with people from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. This provides me with greater insights and opportunities to learn from, not just the role itself but fellow colleagues who work alongside me.”

Sana Bukhsh | Personal Assistant

"I have worked at Paragon Law for 19 years and the main reason I have remained is the respectful and incredibly friendly environment which has developed over the years. I have made friends at work with people from very different backgrounds to myself and I do not think this opportunity would have been given to me elsewhere."

Nikita Swift | Immigration Solicitor

"The inclusivity at Paragon Law was one of the key factors in choosing an employer. I feel incredibly fortunate to work with so many people from different backgrounds and cultures. Such members of staff have been able to offer first-hand insights in relation to certain social and cultural norms in countries aside from the UK which can be very helpful in understanding clients from similar backgrounds allowing for a personal and positive client journey."

Diversity Questionnaire


At the time of asking, Paragon Law was employing 27 individuals, to which the questionnaire received 100% completion. The aim of the questionnaire was to identify how broad of a spectrum the current workforce at Paragon Law is. The questions asked had pre-written answers with the option of 'prefer not to say' if the employee wished.

After analysing the data gathered by employees at Paragon Law, we are proud to be classified within the top 10% of law firm employers that have employees who identify as an ethnic minority within the East Midlands, United Kingdom*.
