Our attorneys understand that diversity and inclusion are critically important for organizations that seek to become a destination for top talent, to deepen marketplace and community relationships, and to manage reputational and legal risks. In partnership with public and private institutional clients, we work to develop robust strategies to harness difference as a competitive advantage and to mitigate risks. Where issues arise, we can craft solutions-based action plans that address both legal and regulatory risks and offer training, coaching, and guidance on more nuanced cultural issues.
We help clients build robust diversity and inclusion strategic plans. For existing plans, we bring thought-leadership and best practices benchmarking, leveraging our employment law expertise to human resources and diversity and inclusion strategies to reflect the rapidly evolving landscape of regulatory, legal and external stakeholders.
Our attorneys also have considerable experience serving as trustees and receivers. Our experience includes serving as court-appointed fiduciaries who marshall assets and sort out competing interests when funds and property are the subjects of a dispute or the rights of interested parties cannot be protected.
Our expertise in complex high-stakes cases makes our attorneys suited to serve as special masters in multifaceted matters to prevent a drain on limited judicial resources.
