Our Commitment to Diversity
Phillip Nizer is deeply committed to diversity. The firm is proud that this commitment recently was featured in the New York Law Journal. The firm also actively supports the implementation of the report issued by the New York State Bar Association entitled “If Not Now, Achieving Equality for Women Attorneys in the Courtroom and in ADR,” which was co-authored by a Phillips Nizer partner. Another firm partner serves in a leadership role on the NYS Bar Association’s Committee on LGBT People and the Law.
We value the diverse and unique perspectives, experiences, backgrounds and characteristics of each person in our firm, including his or her race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, culture, age, gender and sexual orientation, and we are committed to policies that extend equal opportunities to all. We recognize that diversity promotes justice and is an important element in our professional growth.
Our guiding principle, the resourceful representation of our clients, is enhanced by an atmosphere of inclusion. We best serve the values of our clients and best fulfill our professional obligations by supporting and strengthening our commitment to diversity.New York Law Journal Article
