At Montresor Legal, we are committed to promoting diversity, inclusion, and excellence within the legal profession. That's why we are thrilled to announce our latest General Counselling podcast episode featuring Sharon Thomas, a distinguished voice in the legal community, who founded Black Counsel Forum.

Ahead of the Black Counsel Forum 2023 on 30th September, we sat down with Sharon and talked all things about:

  • The mission and impact of the up and coming BCF event
  • Her journey through the law industry as a black lawyer
  • The importance of recruitment to help drive inclusivity and equality within law firms and organisations

We are proud to collaborate with trailblazers like Sharon and the Black Counsel Forum to make lasting positive changes within the legal community. Check out the BCF website here for more information:
