Since the firm's inception, one of Pettit Kohn's core and founding principles is our commitment to achieving and maintaining ethnic, gender and cultural diversity among our attorneys. We believe that a diverse group of talented legal professionals is critically important to the success of our law firm, and that with greater diversity, we can be more creative and effective in the representation of our clients.
Diversity also enables us to apply varied perspectives, experience, backgrounds, talents and interests to more effectively serve our clients' business and legal objectives.
Pettit Kohn's commitment to promoting diversity, both internally and in the communities we serve, is premised upon concrete goals of hiring, retaining and promoting qualified female and minority attorneys. Our attorneys are members, supporters and attendees of bar associations and other organizations that seek to advance the status and increase the number of women and minorities in the legal profession and judiciary.
We recognize and promote the importance of diversity and take pride in knowing we possess a staff of talented attorneys that exceeds the national average in both minority and women attorneys.
Pettit Kohn firmly believes that its professionals and staff that come from diverse backgrounds with diverse ideas create a stronger team. This benefits not only our firm, but our clients as well.
