We have advised a number of law firms and barristers’ chambers on their diversity practices. We also conduct investigations into diversity matters, including gender pay gaps and problems of progression and retention.
Where an allegation of discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual assault has been made, we can investigate independently on behalf of companies, organisations, and victims. We also assist victims in managing any internal processes, and can provide tailored reports for institutions on their progression and diversity matters. We believe we are seen as truly independent, and will only ever act if genuinely conflict-free.
Farore Law can also advise people whose allegations or treatment have been brought to the attention of the regulatory authorities. As such, we can advise on the regulatory process from the investigation stage onwards. We can also represent clients at any hearings convened by regulators.
Suzanne McKie QC has advised on a wide range of matters governed by the FCA, SRA, BSB, GMC, and other regulatory bodies, and has represented many clients taking part in the regulatory proceedings of those organisations.
How we can help
Farore Law can advise regulatory bodies, companies, law firms, and chambers. We can investigate matters on their behalf where there are concerns about diversity, if a “health check” is desirable, or where one or more allegations of discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual assault have been made. Our significant forensic ability and experience in financial and legal institutions makes us the perfect choice for managing the process of investigations.
