David Ampaw is one of PRIME’s Board members.
A partner at DLA Piper, he helps to steer their Head Start UK programme, a long term, holistic initiative supporting students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds enter and succeed in the legal profession. He believes that increasing diversity and social mobility in the legal profession is not only a matter of equity but also critical to future success of any legal business and promoting the continued relevance and excellence of the legal profession. David was born in Lambeth and grew up in Lewisham, South East London.
To mark Social Mobility Awareness Day and as part of their support for the Socioeconomic Diversity Taskforce, DLA Piper launched a series of videos which feature three of their exceptional leaders, including David, talking about their professional journeys. You can view David’s video below.
