Senior Knowledge Lawyer & Co-chair, Freshfields Enabled ERG
Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer
Reena is a Senior Knowledge Lawyer at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, specialising in Corporate Finance, with over 20 years of experience in the legal sector. She is also Co-Chair of Freshfields Enabled (an employee disability network) and a committee member to the Lawyers with Disabilities Division of the Law Society of England & Wales.
Reena has her own less visible disabilities, which developed during her working career, and she lives with chronic pain which impacts her day to day life. She is also a carer for family members with disabilities. These experiences have opened her eyes to the barriers that people with disabilities can face, both in the workplace and in society generally. As a result, Reena is passionate about disability inclusion and accessibility and is committed to developing a disability inclusive culture in the workplace.
Outside of work, Reena is a proud mum of two neurodivergent boys and enjoys walks with her dog, reading, and spending time with friends and family.
