Legal heavyweight pays women partners more than men partners

Hogan Lovells’ gender pay gap among its partners favour women.

The revelation comes after the global firm published its gender pay gap data before the statutory reporting deadline in the UK.

Reporting its partnership pay data separately, the firm showed that its women partners, who make up a fourth of the UK partnership, are paid 2.8% more than their male peers.

The rest of the firm, however, has a 15.3% pay gap in favour of men, who are also paid 47.9% more in bonuses.

Hogan Lovells’ highest pay quartile is made up of 58% women. The firm told the Law Society of England and Wales that the data showed its commitment to ensuring women reach senior positions.

The global firm’s lowest and second-lowest pay quartiles are 72% and 67% women, respectively. The lowest two pay quartiles are made up of mostly non-lawyer positions, the report showed.

Mean gender pay gap stands at 0%, the firm said, when its lawyer population, excluding partners, is analysed.

“We are an equal-pay employer, ensuring fair and competitive reward for equivalent work. We have long been regarded as a firm with a strong female partnership. The results are not surprising, but they do underscore the culture and diverse range of talent we have at our firm,” said Susan Bright, the firm’s managing partner for the UK and Africa.
