Shaping attitudes and structures that promote psychological safety, inclusion and diversity for ethnically and other diverse individuals is a passion that runs alongside Samir’s career as a regulatory legal adviser. At Rare, Allen & Overy, the Financial Conduct Authority and now Mishcon de Reya, Samir has been a thought leader on progressive approaches to recruitment, retention and progression. He has constructively challenged existing approaches, helped implement new processes and acted as a role model by mentoring senior leaders and junior employees. At Mishcon de Reya, he sits on the Race Equity and Social Mobility Committees. In 2021, the firm was ranked in the Social Mobility Foundation Index and 58% of its trainee solicitors came from diverse backgrounds. Additionally, Samir sits on the Advisory Board for the HM Treasury and Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy commissioned taskforce to boost socio-economic diversity in UK financial and professional services.
