Law firms have taken half of the top ten spots in Stonewall’s latest workplace equality ranking, with a total of 17 included in the list of 100 LGBT-friendly employers.

Pinsent Masons is the highest-ranking law firm in second place, up from fifth last year, while Berwin Leighton Paisner (BLP) is the highest-placed new entrant at number eight.

The other law firms in the top 10 are Clifford Chance – which has jumped from ninth place last year to fourth – with Baker McKenzie and Norton Rose Fulbright also making the top 10 at seventh and 10th respectively.
