Being a responsible business means we must be transparent and operate with the highest ethical standards. We aim to ensure that ESG is part of our leadership accountability and is embedded into the job roles and responsibilities of all our staff, across all our 17 offices in 10 countries.

At Al Tamimi & Company, we take our responsibilities to be a good employer extremely seriously. This shows in the diverse workplace we have created. It shows in our approach to equitable opportunities. It shows in our governance and corporate culture. It also shows in our partner development programme, which is supporting the promotion of our colleagues regardless of gender.

Diverse and Inclusive

We have created a workplace that is diverse, open and inclusive. We break down barriers and boundaries, to create an environment where all of our colleagues feel they belong and where there are no differences.

We want to be at the forefront of making a positive impact within our communities, in our firm and across the legal sector. This can only be achieved through continuing to evolve and make progress as a firm and letting our actions speak for themselves.

No boundaries

This focus on diversity, equity and inclusion has impacted our culture of development and growth within the firm, with ‘no boundaries’ being part of our fabric. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group holds our firm accountable. You can see this in action through our Partner Development Programme, which focuses on leadership training, personal development, mentoring and coaching.

The programme has supported many of our female lawyers to become partners and within our business services roles, our senior management team is 70% female.

We are a team of over 55 nationalities, and our professionals (legal and business services) are 56% male and 44% female. We recognise the outstanding efforts of our colleagues throughout the region, and over 50 staff members across all levels and jurisdictions were promoted over the last year, including three female fee-earning lawyers being promoted to partner level.


Equal opportunities

Providing equitable opportunities sits at the heart of the workplaces we create and is also vital to our recruitment. Our recruitment policy and process are fair, honest and transparent. This means that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, marital status, race, or any other reason, and is not disadvantaged by conditions or requirements which cannot be shown to be justifiable.
