It takes a wide variety of perspectives to develop a successful case. Over the years, Robbins Geller has learned that providing opportunities to lawyers from the broadest possible range of backgrounds isn’t just the right thing to do – it’s the best way to do business.
Recognizing that excellence and diversity go hand in hand, the Firm is committed to hiring, retaining and promoting a diverse group of attorneys and staff. Robbins Geller is significantly more diverse than the legal industry average: 32% of Firm attorneys are female; 15% are minorities; 23% of its partners and of counsel are female; and minorities constitute 10% of its partners. In addition, the Firm actively works to recruit minority lawyers through membership in organizations such as the National Society of Hispanic Professionals. The Firm’s diversity statistics were calculated on and are current as of March 31, 2016.
By maintaining and promoting an inclusive environment, Robbins Geller is able to offer the best possible legal services in an atmosphere that helps every employee thrive. The Firm’s differences among its professionals make a stronger, more thoughtful and successful organization. Read Robbins Geller's Equal Opportunity Policy.
Robbins Geller has created a Diversity Committee comprised of eight partners (including three women and three minorities), which works closely with the Firm’s Hiring and Executive Committees. The Diversity Committee is responsible for shaping and advancing the Firm’s diversity objectives with regard to recruiting and professional development and actively works to recruit minority attorneys through membership in organizations such as the National Society of Hispanic Professionals.
The Firm’s diversity efforts also include community outreach. For example, for several years Robbins Geller has supported the California Bar Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to building a better justice system for all Californians. As part of that support, the Firm proudly funds the Foundation’s 3L Diversity Scholar Award Program, which provides scholarships to third-year law students from groups with attributes that are underrepresented in the legal profession, thus helping to cultivate California’s next generations of diverse attorneys who are committed to community service or public interest work.
Robbins Geller supports numerous organizations that promote diversity in the legal profession, including, but not limited to, the Justice & Diversity Center of The Bar Association of San Francisco, the National Bar Association, the National Association of Women Judges, La Raza Lawyers Association, the South Asian Bar Association, the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Foundation, the California Bar Foundation, Lawyers Club of San Diego, California Women Lawyers, California Rural Legal Assistance, the Center of Policy Initiatives (CPI), the Jewish Labor Committee, and the National Association of Women Lawyers.
