When it comes to diversity, we don't just talk the talk. To us, diversity is a no-brainer. You don't only see it in our policy manual. You see it in our people.
A firm populated by people with many different cultural, ethnic, religious, racial, social and geographical backgrounds is, frankly, the only kind of office at which we can imagine working. We look for great people and great lawyers. When that's your commitment, diversity takes care of itself.
We shoot for smart, interesting people with diverse experiences, opinions and ideas.
This leads to better thinking and better service to our clients and our community.
To us, diversity isn’t just a statement in our policy manual. It's the way we do business.
