Diversity & CSR

KBH is a small international firm that is defined by its diversity and inclusiveness.

Composed of team members from a wide range of nationalities speaking multiple languages and from diverse cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds, the firm has naturally evolved as a diverse workplace environment characterised by a notably strong gender balance including in senior positions.

The firm’s diversity is matched and underpinned by our recruitment and workplace policies, in which we strive to achieve tolerance and diversity in every aspect of our practice. KBH prides itself on being an inclusive, diverse, harmonious and friendly workplace.

In addition, we see our diversity as a necessary part of the firm’s ethos in offering our clients, from wherever and whoever they may be, the benefits of a global outlook. Although anchored in our jurisdictional knowledge and our regional presence, we offer partnership based upon our diverse and global perspectives.

Over the years KBH has trained up and released into the market several junior lawyers, associates and paralegal assistants. At all levels the firm is on target to achieve the calibrated promotions and skills development to meet our growth strategy.

KBH is promoting and liaising with the legal affairs departments of the countries in which it is present to increase opportunities for local lawyers to gain experience at KBH and run placement schemes. KBH also has a strong coordinating role in onshore UAE litigation, and career development opportunities in regional onshore litigation will be a focus in the years ahead.

The firm’s trainee mentoring programmes are complemented by active outreach to pro bono work, focused mainly in employment, housing and immigration matters.
