  • National Hispanic Heritage Month

    September 15 to October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. We salute Ellen Ochoa (the first female Hispanic astronaut), Luis Walter Alvarez (a Nobel Peace Prize recipient), Justice Sonia Sotomayor (the first Hispanic and the third female to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court) and many others who contribute to the success of this country and advance the common goal of a better, stronger and more inclusive America.

Diversity & Inclusion

Our Commitment

Our goal is to walk the walk. Like our clients, our attorneys come from a wide range of industries, geographies, and cultures. Our Executive Committee and Diversity & Inclusion Committee have partnered to advance initiatives that focus on recruitment, professional development, attorney retention and advancement, and cross-cultural awareness. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is evidenced in the quality of work that we provide to our clients, the level of commitment that we show to our communities, and the culture of inclusion that we foster in each of our offices. We are proud of our history of equality and deeply committed to continuing to build upon our successes.

Diversity & Inclusion Committee

The firm has a proactive Diversity & Inclusion Committee consisting of partners and administrative staff from the various regional offices. It is charged with educating members of the firm on diversity issues, supporting and promoting diverse candidates, and sponsoring/representing the firm at various diversity-related events. The committee holds regular meetings to address relevant topics, including ways for the firm and its various practice groups to enhance and improve the retention, promotion, and professional growth of diverse attorneys.
