As a high profile ethnic minority role model, Nilufer acts as a mentor both formally and informally to ethnic minority employees throughout the firm. She supported the development of the firm’s bespoke ethnic minority cross company mentoring programme, which was the first of its kind and aimed to retain talented, diverse lawyers by providing them with impartial career advice from senior business leaders. This scheme has now been rolled out to other employers and she continues to participate as a mentor to someone outside of Slaughter and May. Externally, Nilufer is on the Board of Trustees of Into University, leading on hosting workshops for students to introduce them to the legal profession as a career option. This year she was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s honours list for services to financial services. Career highlights have included advising on the UK Government’s post-crisis bailout and re-privatisation of Lloyds Banking Group. She is listed for M&A in The Legal 500, and as a leading lawyer in the Capital Markets – Equity section of IFLR1000. She has also been profiled in Black Letter Law, a directory that showcases achievement of ethnic minority lawyers, since it began in 2006.
