Originally designed to assist women in increasing participating in networking activities, it has contributed enormously to the culture of our firm. 35% of our partners are now female which has risen from 18% 7 years ago. MADDOCKS Maddocks has a full suite of policies and procedures which establish guidelines that provide clarity for all staff and promote the adoption of consistent good decision making across the whole firm. We have policies which broadly fall into areas such as business services policies, client policies, finance policies, information technology policies and specific governance policies. Critical amongst the governance policies are specific policies regarding ethical conduct, information security, anti-bribery and delegated authority policies. Ultimate responsibility for the management of the firm rests with the partnership. However, we have Service Group Directors and Practice Group Heads who report to the CEO. The CEO in turn reports to the Board.
