Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion Committee | Minority Outreach | Women's Initiatives | LGBT Outreach | Awards and Recognition

 

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in our global pool of talented lawyers. We understand that organizations work best when people with different backgrounds and viewpoints are brought together. We believe that this understanding allows us to better serve the rapidly changing needs of our clients across the world.

Our diversity and inclusion mission statement is to foster an environment where individuals of diverse race, color, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, disability, and marital and parental status may succeed professionally and fully contribute to the goals of the Firm.

Ours is a long-term commitment to diversity and its inclusion in the legal industry.
