Diversity is a core value at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan. Supporting diversity efforts is essential in meeting our goal of providing our clients with the best lawyers and legal solutions for their needs. Fundamentally, we believe that diversity efforts are about increasing access to opportunities for attorneys and identifying, supporting and developing the best legal minds in the profession. Our attention to diversity is ongoing, innovative and proactive.
From recruiting through career development, Stroock actively supports the development and recognition of the unique potential of every attorney. We continually explore new ways to help all of our attorneys express themselves, build their skills and advance their careers in the changing global marketplace. We seek to help our attorneys meet their career goals and develop into outstanding lawyers capable of offering the kind of legal services our clients expect.
We offer mentoring projects and internships to teach minority youth about the law and the many options for them in the legal profession. We work with law schools in our communities where we actively recruit to support minority student associations, advancing the students’ legal education and entry into the profession.
The positive results of these initiatives are felt in many ways. From the diversity and retention of our attorneys and the breadth of our community service to our supportive environment and the professionalism of our work, Stroock’s commitment to access and opportunity is integral to our success as a firm and with our clients.
