    The firm received the award in recognition of its global parental leave policy, 'FamilyCare@Ashurst', which recognises the diversity of family structures and the different routes to parenthood. Launched in 2021, the firm's market-leading package includes pregnancy loss provisions and introduces a globally consistent offering of 26 weeks fully paid leave, irrespective of gender identity.

    Karen Richardson, People & Culture Director said:

    "We are delighted that Ashurst has received this market recognition, it is a testament to the whole team's hard work and reflects our absolute focus on supporting staff wellbeing. Building tangible support for people building extraordinary careers and a family is critically important to Ashurst and this award recognises our efforts in ensuring parents have access to the right support to thrive in their careers and in their roles as carers."
