Lawyer Recruiting: Diversity
Recognizing our commitment to diversity, we were named the inaugural recipient of International Paper’s Lighthouse Award — presented to International Paper’s legal department supplier, who by example and leadership, distinguished itself in the area of diversity.
The Minority Corporate Counsel Association — a Washington, D.C. - based nonprofit organization committed to fostering diversity in the legal profession — awarded us its prestigious Thomas L. Sager Award for our commitment to hiring, retaining and promoting ethnic minority lawyers.
Several of our clients are represented on MCCA’s board of directors; we’ve been an active member of the association’s Outside Counsel Strategic Planning Committee and in raising funds to support the group’s minority job bank; and we provided significant support to the group’s first annual CLE Expo.
All this in addition to a merger with a
minority-owned law firm; joint ventures with
other minority law firms; and ongoing
participation in countless minority job fairs,
seminars on minority hiring, and career panels
sponsored by law school placement offices and
