“We’re all connected” takes on special meaning when it comes to diversity and inclusion at Loeb. Our diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives truly make our community stronger.
Together, we nurture and celebrate diversity, fostering an inclusive environment that results in more creative ideas, more productive discussions and better solutions for our clients.
Community building and education are incredibly important towards celebrating diversity and nurturing a culture of belonging.
We recognize the importance of aligning our firm with the diverse communities in which we do business. That’s why we have developed and implemented comprehensive policies and programs to support the recruitment and retention of diverse talent at all levels, ensuring team members have a path to long-term success at the firm.
Routinely, we look for ways to partner with our clients to work toward common goals for diversity and inclusion. These range from consideration of diversity in matter staffing decisions to pro bono collaborations advancing the legal interests of diverse and historically underserved populations.
We are proud of our culture, where colleagues understand the value and importance of diversity and inclusion, and we are deeply committed to the continued advancement of diversity within our firm, throughout the legal profession and in the communities we serve.
Loeb & Loeb’s Diversity Committee — comprising attorneys and senior administrative staff members across our offices — is the jet fuel behind our diversity and inclusion initiatives. The committee sets the strategy for enhancing diversity at Loeb, working with firm leadership and dedicated Affinity Groups to strengthen our culture of inclusion and maintain an environment in which all our people have an equal opportunity to flourish.
Loeb’s Affinity Groups — including our Attorneys of Color and Ethnic Diversity, Pride and Women’s groups — play a vital role in addressing the needs of women and minority lawyers and professionals throughout the firm.
These groups help foster community within these populations and serve as a forum for networking, mentorship, and professional and business development. Each group takes a tailored approach to supporting the advancement and retention of our diverse lawyers and leaders, building and maintaining networks with clients and the community, and fostering engagement among our professionals at all levels.
