Diversity

Diversity is a core value at Chadbourne. We believe that drawing on a variety of experiences, backgrounds and ideas enriches our workplace. Our lawyers hail from numerous countries around the world and speak several dozen languages, uniquely positioning them to meet the challenges of the new global economy. Chadbourne consistently ranks among the top 50 firms in The American Lawyer's Diversity Scorecard, and 2014 proved to be no different, as we ranked 28th out of 223 law firms. The Firm also has received recognition from other diversity-related publications, such as MultiCultural Law Magazine.

Chadbourne is a charter signatory to the Association of the Bar of the City of New York’s 2003 Statement of Diversity Principles; the Association’s revised goals and mission statement of 1998, the Statement of Goals of New York Law Firms and Legal Departments for the Retention and Promotion of Women; and the Committee on Recruitment and Retention of Lawyers’ 1991 Statement of Goals of New York Law Firms and Corporate Legal Departments for Increasing Minority Hiring, Retention and Promotion; Association of the Bar of the City of New York’s Committee to Enhance Diversity in the Legal Profession.

 


"Diversity is one of the important values that are critical to our success as a firm. We are not only committed to it as the socially responsible thing to do, but even more so because it strengthens our ability to understand our clients' needs and to provide the most comprehensive solutions to address them."
