29 Women Changing The Face Of UK Real Estate

Madeleine Davitt, Senior Partner.

We are proud to announce that our Senior Partner, Madeleine Davitt, has been recognised as Equality Initiator in Bisnow’s Annual List of 29 Women Changing the Face of UK Real Estate.

Madeleine has worked hard to achieve a 50-50 ratio between male and female partners at the company, a rarity in the industry. She is also a pioneer of wellbeing in the workplace, enabling DJB lawyers to work from home as standard for over 15 years, creating an inclusive workspace for parents, carers and those with mobility issues — groups that are often left out of the diversity conversation.
