Diversity

We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment. It is our firm’s broad range of experiences and perspectives that enables us to meet the challenges of today’s global clients and has helped us become one of the world’s most dynamic and innovative firms.

We are recognized as a firm of choice for diversity and inclusion, and are consistently ranked among the top law firms for gender and ethnic diversity. Paul Hastings is ranked among the top 20 on The American Lawyer’s Diversity Scorecard, while the Black Solicitors Network ranked the firm 1st for Lesbian Gay Bisexual employers and among the top 5 for Ethnic Minority Partners in its Diversity League Tables. To us, diversity is much more than a philosophy – it is who we are and how we do business. More than one-third of our firm’s management and leaders represent gender, ethnic, and LGBT diversity.

Diversity plays a key role in our recruitment strategy. We recruit the best and brightest talent from the world’s leading law schools and work with a range of student organizations to achieve our diversity goals and build our diverse talent base.

Partnering with our client GE Capital Americas in support of their key initiative

We are pleased to have the opportunity to partner with our clients in support of many of their key initiatives. This past fall, Paul Hastings worked with client GE Capital Americas to host a full-day event on workplace equality in support of GE’s large diversity initiative, Project HOLA! (Having Outside Lawyer Advisors). Held at our New York office, this major event was a true collaborative effort and brought together more than 50 experienced diversity leaders from throughout the business and legal communities to network and share best practices. The day featured a keynote speaker, two dynamic panel discussions, and a set of interactive breakout sessions that further facilitated the sharing of practices and processes to promote equality in the work environment.
