At Thompson Coe, we believe in and are committed to the principles of diversity. Our people are our strength and we know that their diverse backgrounds and perspectives help us obtain the best results for our clients. We have long recognized that our diversity is key to truly understanding the needs of our clients and finding the best solutions for their problems. We know that having diversity as a core value makes us a better firm.
We actively recruit minority, female and other talented attorneys who represent a broad range of racial, ethnic and social backgrounds. We seek to identify in our recruiting process candidates who not only possess great legal abilities, but also varied life experiences. Our firm’s Diversity Committee remains involved in every facet of our recruiting.
We have implemented an Associates School Program and individual mentoring partnerships to ensure that our new associates become integrated into their sections, the firm and the practice of law. We strive to understand the needs of our attorneys and to create an environment for their continued success. To foster the growth and development of our attorneys, they are provided opportunities early in their careers to take on challenging, meaningful matters and work directly with clients.
We provide our associates the skills, training, community exposure and opportunities to succeed in their careers. We have had great success providing our diverse attorneys with critical experience including trials. We take tremendous pride in seeing our attorneys develop, advance, and assume leadership positions in our firm and in our profession.
Thompson Coe continues to attract and hire the best attorneys from diverse backgrounds. The number of our minority and female attorneys who advance as Partners of the firm continue to grow, and these attorneys hold positions of responsibility in the firm’s 15 leadership committees.
Thompson Coe is dedicated to promoting diversity in all facets of our organization, community involvement and client service. We draw on our rich diversity to be the best at what we do.
