KSB Nominated for Chambers D&I Awards: Europe 202214/02/22 / News

Chambers and Partners, the prestigious international rating company that compiles annual rankings of the world's best law firms, has nominated KSB for this year's Chambers D&I Awards in the Diversity & Inclusion: Outstanding Firm category. The awards ceremony will take place in Madrid on 22 April.

We greatly appreciate the nomination and see it as recognition of our long-standing natural approach to diversity in the legal profession. Since our founding, we have prided ourselves on building a collegial atmosphere rather than an institutional corporate model. Mutual trust and understanding enables us to provide all of our associates with a level of flexibility that suits their particular needs. This enables us to attract the best talent and provide equal opportunities for all.

We proactively support projects recognizing women in the Czech legal environment, such as Významné právničky (Outstanding Women Lawyers), which is announced annually by the legal magazine Právní rádce.  We also took part in last year's unique #PRVNICH100LET project, which celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first woman to graduate from law school and helped to bring together contemporary women of the legal world and public life.

Our lawyers are also active in the Czech Bar Association's Lawyers to Schools program (“Advokáti do škol”), which provides schools with inspirational materials and stories about the role of law and lawyers in everyday life. As part of the programme, our lawyers also reach out directly to children in primary and secondary schools, showing how a career in law is open to all and how knowledge of basic legal principles strengthens the rights of all citizens.
