We are committed to fostering diversity and equal opportunity in the practice of law as well as in our firm. We celebrate our employees’ differences and foster an environment where people of all backgrounds and experiences can reach their full potential regardless of such factors as race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, family or marital status, or disability. We respect, understand and appreciate the individual differences among us. And we recognize that those differences bring varied perspectives, backgrounds, experiences, talents and interests that will greatly enhance our ability to carry out the firm’s mission of representing the interests of businesses and individuals.
Our goal is to create a diverse culture within our law firm that will reflect the increasing diversity of our clients and the communities we serve. All successful businesses are diverse and we are committed to recruiting, retaining and promoting diverse lawyers and staff. Our Diversity Committee, currently chaired by Pierre Seacord, oversees the firm’s efforts to recruit and retain diverse lawyers and staff. By monitoring existing policies and practices, they are committed to ensuring that diversity is part of our firm’s culture.
