How 5 Firms Are Building More Diverse Ranks

August 20, 2017, Law360

Law360 features Covington in an article examining how "firms are making substantial progress on diversifying their ranks." According to Anne Lee, "The firm is thoughtful about creating opportunities for developing attorneys, and that’s what has kept me here. It’s helping me grow.”

Commenting on the firm's collaborative culture that aligns with diversity goals, Tammy Albarrán says, "We don’t view clients as a particular partner’s—rather, they are the firm’s." She adds, “It makes it a place where diverse lawyers can succeed in ways that they might not be able to under a cutthroat, eat-what-you-kill compensation system.”

Michael Imbroscio describes that firm's program where diverse recruits who have received job offers are flown back to Washington or San Francisco to meet with diverse lawyers and discuss their experiences at the firm. “It creates a sense of community, and we’ve found that to be a tremendously effective and valuable way to communicate what it’s like to be a lawyer at Covington,” he says.
