Gwent Law Firm Scoops Diversity Award

Gwent-based Watkins and Gunn Solicitors is celebrating after scooping an award at the Wales Business Awards 2022.

The company, which has offices in Pontypool, Newport and Cardiff, took home the Diversity and Inclusion Award at the ceremony, hosted by Chambers Wales South East, South West and Mid, held at St Fagans National Museum of History, Cardiff.

Judges hailed Watkins and Gunn’s diversity and inclusion strategy as ‘very impressive’ and said that ‘this is a business that walks the talk on equality, diversity and inclusion engagement. They’ve clearly spent a lot of time thinking through what they need to do and implementing processes so they can really make a difference.’

Clive Thomas, managing director at Watkins and Gunn Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to have won this very auspicious cross sector award in such an important category. It serves to validate all the work we have done around promoting, educating and engaging with our staff and clients on a range of diversity and inclusion matters. Our work does not stop here; being inclusive is one of our core values which we seek to live as a firm.”

Now in its 19th year, the awards provide SME businesses across the country with the opportunity to compete for Wales’ most prestigious accolades.
