Bookmark and Share

In a special law supplement appearing in the August 25, 2006, edition of the Puget Sound Business Journal, Lane Powell was recognized for its diversity efforts in an article titled, “Demand: Clients Value Diversity in Law Firms’ Culture.” The article discusses the increasing demands for diversity in the workplace being made by potential clients and specifically addresses the measures that law firms are taking to accommodate those requests including minority clerkship programs, diversity scholarships and mentoring opportunities for young attorneys. Shareholder Randy Beighle was quoted as saying, “Clients are telling us they have a commitment to diversity and expect their law firm to share that.”
