Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Committed to real change.
As lawyers, we are guided by a shared dedication to justice. That means modeling our firm’s culture and organizational structures on the kind of fairness and inclusion we want to see in the world. And it means doing the work to make sure we are asking difficult questions, listening with intention and vulnerability, and implementing, evaluating, and revising policy that uplifts true equity and equality.
As with everything at LP, our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts begin with attracting, hiring, and retaining the right people. We are intentional about how we mentor, measure, and value our team members’ contributions. Our commitment to these ongoing efforts, including our DEI task force, has the full support of—and influence on—our executive and compensation committees, as well as decisions about compensation.
We are committed to continuing to learn and adapt regarding DEI, and we are serious about turning reflection into action.
A broader view for a stronger team
We are thrilled to announce that LP has achieved Mansfield Certification, an exciting and innovative national initiative that we know will foster meaningful positive change within our firm. Participating in the Mansfield Rule initiative seeks to broaden the talent pool to ensure pathways to leadership – including lateral hiring, client teams, promotions, and more – are open and transparent to all qualified lawyers, including those historically underrepresented in the legal profession.
As with everything at LP, our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts begin with attracting, hiring, and retaining the right people. After all, it is Step 1 in The LP Way™. We are intentional about how we mentor, measure, and value our team members’ contributions. Mansfield Certification recognizes this commitment and our intentional actions to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion. The intentionality of the Mansfield framework helps us ensure that we apply an inclusive, structured, and data-driven approach to leadership advancement, business development, and client service.
