Fides Search appoints Social Mobility Champion, Dorothy Adu-Mfum as Researcher and Inclusion lead.



Fides Search is delighted to welcome Dorothy Adu-Mfum to the team. Dorothy joins us as Researcher and will be supporting our clients on pre-search analysis, mapping and due diligence. Dorothy adds to our London based capability and will also support our clients in continental Europe and the Middle East. Dorothy will work with clients across Professional Services, Financial Services, Technology and Life Sciences. Dorothy has a strong passion for the legal industry thanks to her legal studies, having completed her LPC and MSC in 2020 with a distinction and her undergraduate degree in Law in 2016 with a first-class.

Dorothy is also passionate about thought leadership and contributes to a female-led magazine which empowers female-owned, and female-led businesses to positively impact their communities; both socially and economically. This allows her to add further depth to our thought-leadership in our cross-sector Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives.

Having experienced hardship while growing up, Dorothy founded Law City in December 2019, a platform that connects aspiring lawyers from Low-socioeconomic status (SES) households/backgrounds to the legal sector in London. With a long history of championing social mobility, Dorothy will play a leading role in increasing social mobility within our network.

She joins us at Fides Search during a period of growth following the appointment of Syed Nasser who joined as a Venture Capital and Technology Transactions specialist, Mathew Parker who also recently joined our TMT sector group and Chris Excell who leads our IP and Patents sector group.

Edward Parker, Director of Fides Search had this to say:

Dorothy is a tremendous person, we are all very excited to have her join the team. What she has achieved academically and in terms of setting up Law-City is simply incredible and points to the kind of person she is. Having a first class research function is vital to the success of any search business as such Dorothy will be a key member in the team and someone we think will add great value. We look forward to working with Dorothy and we look forward to working with the Law-City community and our existing clients/network to help push the social mobility agenda along with our other areas of thought leadership.

What Dorothy had to say:

I am very happy to join the growing team at Fides Search as a Researcher. I am particularly excited to contribute to our thought leadership in our cross-sector Diversity and Inclusion initiative and providing insight in regard to Social mobility. I am proud to be part of a Search firm that leads in delivering exceptional service and client experience.
