At the firm, every person counts, every day. They are leaders in mentoring and developing outstanding diverse attorneys, with percentages of women and diverse partners and associates exceeding national averages.

It is about winning cases, negotiating the best deal, and obtaining the most secure patents. It is about employing a diversity of thought, creativity, and experience to understand clients’ objectives and serve as trusted advisers. And it is about making sure that they reflect and give back to the communities in which they practice. The firm encourages job applicants who will contribute to the diversity of the practice and of the legal profession.
