Diversity & Inclusion

Euclid Law is may be a specialised boutique firm, but our diversity is vast:

  • Our multi-ethnic team represents 8 nationalities (German, Belgian, Greek, Italian, British, Swiss, French, and Spanish)
  • Our partners are 50/50 male/female
  • Our entire team is 50/50 male/female

This is no accident: one of Euclid’s core founding principles is that there is strength in diversity and inclusion.

Our Gender Diversity

With two of our three founding partners being female, gender diversity has been a priority from the outset.

We remain guided in this by our founding partner Sarah Long, a well-known thought leader on Gender and Competition Law who talks and writes on the subject frequently:

Our Inclusivity

Euclid strives to ensure an inclusive workspace that encourages diversity and intersectionality, both internally and externally.

Internally, we aim for integrated talent management and workplace development, which includes training opportunities, career development and mentorship.

Our non-hierarchical structure ensures every team member, from partner to paralegal, is treated as a valued colleague and is included in policymaking and other integral decisions. 

Externally, our collaborative and transparent approach ensures the client is included in all processes. This extends to all clients, no matter their level of expertise or level of accessibility. For example, Euclid Law is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to people with disabilities. We strive to meet or exceed the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) requirements. Developed by the World Wide Web Consortium, WCAG 2.0 aims to provide a single, shared standard for web content accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organisations and governments internationally. 

We are fortunate to be guided on the integral process of inclusiveness by our partner Oliver Bretz, who has written extensively about law firm models and their impact on diversity:

Our Ongoing Commitment

We do not view inclusivity as just another ‘box to tick’, nor do we approach it as an afterthought. We believe in a  ‘built in’ rather than ‘bolt on’ approach, therefore inclusivity is ingrained in every area of our business and we ensure it remains so via regular training. 

For example Euclid Law conducts annual training on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, and our entire team has received Completion Certificates. These are required upon start date for every new employee/team member.
