That's why we're committed to nurturing an inclusive environment at Mourant where our people are able to bring their whole authentic self to work every day, and are equally empowered to reach their full potential."
Companies shortlisted in these categories must demonstrate leadership and development of individuals under 40 including investing in qualifications, providing opportunities for additional responsibilities, enabling flexible working and supporting LGBT+ and diversity individuals.
Sarah Kelly continued: "We've invested significantly in our comprehensive learning and development programme and continuously developing and implementing a robust inclusion strategy. We work hard to foster an inclusive culture, supported by our employee-led networks, so everyone can be the best they can be. We'd like to thank our clients and contacts who take the time to vote for us and wish all those shortlisted the best of luck."
