If everyone in a room thinks alike, probably only one person is thinking.
At Kerr Russell, continued diversity is an important component of our strategic plan for success, and is driven by vision and passion at the highest levels of the firm. Although Kerr Russell has always fostered a welcoming, inclusive environment, the motivation for our steadfast focus on diversity is simple: As we increasingly serve clients who compete in today’s global, multi-cultural marketplace, we must rely on the differing backgrounds, experiences and perspectives of our attorneys and professional staff in order to provide the quality representation our clients demand and deserve.
We value – and seek to generate – an influx of ideas and contributions from every quarter. Our clients hail from all corners of the world, and face a wide range of legal issues. They do not all look, talk or think alike. Neither do we – and we believe our differences make us stronger. What clients find at Kerr Russell, whatever their legal issue, circumstances, or country of origin, is common ground. They can be confident of working with attorneys who possess a well-rounded world view, an uncommon sensitivity to the subtleties of their culture, and the knowledge and awareness of how those factors influence business decisions.
Most significantly, although advancing diversity in the workplace makes good business sense, we have another, more basic reason that motivates us – it is, undeniably, the right thing to do.
