M&C featured in the 2023 annuals from The Trademark Lawyer Magazine and the Patent Lawyer Magazine discussing diversity, equity and inclusion

At Marks & Clerk, we are committed to recruiting, retaining, developing and recognising a diverse workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our values, are embedded in our day-to-day working practices with all our clients, employees and suppliers. With this in mind, we are grateful to have been asked to contribute to the 2023 annuals from The Trademark Lawyer Magazine and The Patent Lawyer Magazine to provide an insight into the difficulties facing those with disabilities when entering and integrating into the workforce.

Ultimately, the decision to disclose a disability is a deeply personal one and there is no legal obligation to do so. Therefore, when a person chooses to disclose, they should be treated with respect and a collaborative approach should be taken with regard to their personal requirements. Studies have shown that diverse and inclusive workforces are advantageous to businesses and so we should aim to promote a workplace culture in which those who wish to disclose their disabilities feel more secure in doing so.
