Hahn Loeser was founded based upon religious diversity in 1920, an era in which it was unusual to embrace multiple religious and cultural backgrounds in a partnership. From these origins, a strong commitment to diversity throughout the firm has been established.
We are proud of the rich diversity of our legal and support staff. African American, Asian American and Hispanic American attorneys, as well as attorneys with widely-varying cultural and religious backgrounds, enjoy successful and rewarding careers at Hahn Loeser. We are committed to providing our clients with quality legal talent as well as a breadth of background, viewpoints and experience to solve their business needs.
The firm routinely considers and hires qualified candidates who bring a variety of professional backgrounds to the practice of law. Individuals have joined us from securities firms and their own businesses. Our ranks include former accountants, teachers, human resource professionals, and industrial salespeople, and our attorneys hold a wide range of advanced degrees.
Diversity is neither accomplished nor maintained automatically. To enhance the diversity of our ranks, the firm has undertaken specific initiatives, including:
- Participating in bar association minority clerkship programs;
- Participating in minority job fairs;
- Considering the background, work and other experience of law student candidates in addition to their academic standing; and
- Providing ongoing training to all associates for practice skills that will help them develop successful and rewarding careers.
These measures will allow us to continue to provide our clients with the breadth of opinion and reflection necessary to provide the quality of legal services our clients deserve.
