Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity Is How We See.
It Isn't Just How We Look.®

At Robins Kaplan LLP, our commitment to diversity has been constantly renewed and revitalized since the founding of our firm in 1938. We recognize that the professionals we employ are our primary assets. Without skilled human resources, the legal advice and courtroom advocacy we provide to our clients is diminished. We are committed to advancing diversity by ensuring that fairness, respect and professional opportunity for everyone are integral to all of our recruiting, retention and promotion efforts. We believe that the diverse background of our people brings necessary and varied perspectives that enrich our practice of law. Those perspectives make us more than a diverse law firm; they make us a smart one.
