Women and diverse attorneys head five of the offices, including the largest. The firm is routinely ranked among the best law firms for women and diverse attorneys, family-friendly policies, informal training, and other categories that help promote a diverse workplace. A true climate of diversity, though, cannot be measured by statistics, ratings, and awards alone. Fostering inclusion through diversity is one of the surest ways to provide the best results for clients. Commitment to diversity is not about winning prizes. 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.
