Diversity is more than just an initiative.
Cultivating a diverse workforce is a key part of our core values. We know from experience that recruiting, retaining, developing and promoting attorneys and staff from a variety of backgrounds contributes to the firm's overall success and, by extension, to our clients' success.
Diversity adds value.
A diverse workforce—lawyers and staff with distinctive backgrounds, experiences, and viewpoints—benefits both our firm and our clients. We're positioned to look at each issue with fresh eyes and varied lenses, and we find unique solutions to problems as a result.
Our numbers speak for themselves.
Numbers and data are not our only goal; rather, creating an environment of support and collaboration that allows diverse attorneys to thrive is our primary focus. However, our diversity percentages prove our efforts are succeeding—they match those of a general practice law firm, rather than the lower percentages typical in an intellectual property firm.
