Diversity and Inclusion

Our purpose is to help all our clients, our colleagues and communities succeed.  Without exception.

Everyone is welcome at Thorntons. We strongly believe in a diverse and inclusive working environment: one that does not tolerate any form of discrimination at any level.

As a company that embraces individualism, and allows people to express themselves as who they are, we celebrate our differences. We believe our differences make us stronger, together.

Our aim is to be champions of socioeconomic diversity and make the legal community more accessible to all.

Sustainability and the environment

The world has seen many changes since our origins in 1857. However, one of the most alarming changes in recent years is that of climate change. From record temperatures to flooding, we are seeing the impact of global warming on our ecosystems and communities.

As a company we have a clear responsibility to implement sustainable practices. This is why we are creating an environmental plan which, including our supply chain, will reduce waste, lower our carbon footprint and advance our sustainability like never before.

This is more than doing what is right: it is doing what is essential.
