Reflecting on Black History Month and Our Support for Black Lives Matter:

Paragon Law stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. Our DNA is in addressing the issues of injustice, discrimination and disadvantage through the Rule of Law. As part of our work we aim to help eradicate racism in society and to champion the contribution and the benefits of a diverse society to the UK economy. 

We are a specialist immigration law firm advising and representing businesses that want to recruit the best talent from around the world and individuals that are looking to enter or remain in the UK. We have a top tier human rights department that represents clients fearing persecution from the countries that they have fled from because of reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or the social group that they belong to. The UK should not forget its international obligations to the vulnerable.

Paragon People are as diverse as the clients we represent, with colleagues, past and present, representing every continent on the planet. We have an ethnically diverse practise including our management team. We recognise the talents of the BAME community and actively invest in and promote their development within the legal field.

We are proud that our client base can be local but trading globally. Like us, our business clients recruit the best talent, wherever this talent is in the world and regardless of their race.

Paragon Law will continue to promote the contribution of a diverse legal profession.  We will amplify our efforts on:

  • Our relationships with universities and schools to give work experience to young people from diverse communities so that even if they do not choose the law as a career, they will become young adults who are aware of their rights and the rule of law;

  • Supporting and mentoring law students and trainees from the BAME communities in their careers;

  • Delivering lectures and talks from leading academics and professionals thereby giving those from underrepresented backgrounds insights and access to those that they can be inspired by and learn from;

  • Continue to provide support, advice and counsel to community groups and not for profit organisations that represent underrepresented communities.

Paragon Law have been awarded and recognised in the past for our diversity but we recognise that now is the time to do more.

From all of the Team at Paragon Law
