Meet our people

Ezanne Difford, HR Business Partner

"As a Human Resources Business Partner, I am aligned to and work closely with the leadership teams to enhance the culture, performance and engagement through our people. I support the development of people plans that are individual and unique to the Practice Groups, to ultimately meet the strategic goals of the Firm. I am aligned to Corporate, Commercial, Banking, Employment Pensions & Immigration, and the Financial Services groups and I thoroughly enjoy partnering with people across such a broad range of legal expertise. Outside of work I enjoy reformer Pilates classes, cooking, time with friends and family, shopping and planning my next beach holiday."

Culture at CRS

We have a collegiate and supportive culture with a strong sense of common goals and purpose. We are hard-working and passionate about what we do, and take pride in our work always ensuring we deliver at a high standard. I have found it very rewarding to be part of a Firm that values the importance of nurturing talent through development programmes. The Firm also believes in giving back to the community and the environment through various responsible business and social impact initiatives, and encourages having fun and connecting with each other at our sports and social events. It is unusual to walk past anyone without a friendly acknowledgement and hello.
