Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Hiring and advancing diverse attorneys has been important to us as a firm since long before the legal profession recognized the business benefits of diverse teams. Our top-down commitment to diversity requires us to look beyond statistics to ensure we create an environment where all of our attorneys — and, in turn, our clients — can truly succeed. We continually assess and launch diversity and inclusion initiatives, and our efforts have been nationally recognized.

Business Resource Groups

Our internal networking groups power initiatives that have impacts within the firm, legal profession, and our communities.

Recent Initiatives

  • A 360-degree review process through which our attorneys and government consultants rank their practice group leaders on factors that include how well they promote diversity — their effectiveness weighs into their compensation
  • a scholarship program that annually provides two qualifying diverse law students with paid positions as summer associates with our firm, plus $5,000
