Liskow & Lewis is committed to enhancing the racial, cultural and gender diversity within our firm and our profession. We believe that diversity makes us a stronger and more capable organization and that it enables us to better serve our clients in all practice areas.
We commit to investing the time and resources necessary to hire, mentor and retain lawyers of diverse backgrounds, recognizing that diversity efforts must not end with recruitment. Members of our firm actively participate in several national and local organizations that promote diversity within our profession, including the Louis A. Martinet Legal Society, National Bar Association, Minority Corporate Counsel Association and the Louisiana Bar Association’s Minority Involvement and Diversity Sections.
Our recruiting committee actively seeks students and attorneys with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Through our firm’s mentoring program and other diversity initiatives, we strive to assist our associates in developing skills that will help them grow professionally and rise to the highest levels of not only our firm but within our communities.
The committee consists of shareholders and associates from each of our offices and devotes its time and energy to the professional growth of minority attorneys as well as the growth of a diverse client base. Dana Douglas currently serves as the firm's Minority Recruitment and Retention Partner so as to coordinate our ongoing efforts to seek out the best minority attorneys for possible positions within our firm, while insuring that those lawyers receive the appropriate professional mentoring and training as they develop their practice. However, today’s diversity initiatives are only the beginning at Liskow & Lewis. We continue to explore new and more effective methods to recruit, hire and retain talented attorneys and staff members with diverse backgrounds. These continuing efforts are an integral part of our mission to provide superior client services.
