Female Fraud Forum Webcast: Addressing the Gender Gap

Despite the fact that half of practising lawyers in the UK are women, 93% of law firms say the most highly compensated partner is a man. Throughout the profession, female lawyers continue to be significantly under-represented in positions of senior leadership.

Join the webinar on 2nd July 2020 at 5pm to discuss the extent to which conscious and unconscious bias affects the advancement of women to senior positions; what strategies women should use to bridge the current divide, and  how incentives such as legal finance and the award structure of origination credit can help close the gender gap.


  • Elizabeth Fisher, Senior VP of Burford Capital
    Involved in the Equity Project, a ground-breaking initiative designed to close the gender gap through the provision of origination credit.
  • Deborah Glassbrook, Director of Children’s Services

  • Veena Marr, Consultant at Russel Reynolds Associates in the firm’s Technology and Global Activation & Growth Practices team
