Cooper Grace Ward has been named as a finalist in the Women in Law Awards in the category of Diversity Law Firm of the Year.

The Diversity Law Firm of the Year recognises law firms who foster a diverse culture and encourage the retention of female legal professionals.

The assessment criteria focused on retention and recruitment policies, the provision of flexible work arrangements and distinct policies implemented to lift the number of females into senior positions.

This year has been particularly challenging for law firms, so it's great to see that CGW continues to perform well in this space against our peers. The elements required for change to achieve awards like this are initiated and executed over many years.

The winners will be announced in December.
