At Bryant Rabbino LLP, we pride ourselves on our diverse team and inclusive environment. Our goal is to attract, engage and retain talented lawyers and staff with a range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. Over half of our lawyers are minorities and more than a third are women. Minority Partners own over 51% of the Firm’s equity and manage the day to day operations of the Firm. The principle that diversity is an essential component of good business practices is foundational to us. We believe that our very existence attests to the importance of diversity in the legal profession and that our success demonstrates the excellent results that a diverse Firm can achieve. We are certified as a minority-owned business enterprise with the following certifying bodies: New York State’s Division of Minority and Women-Owned Business Development, New York City’s Department of Small Business Services and the National Minority Supplier Development Council’s New York/New Jersey Chapter. The Firm is also a member of the National Association of Minority and Women-Owned Law Firms (NAMWOLF).
In addition to building a dynamic team, we are dedicated to maximizing our diversity by providing an inclusive work environment. We value and respect each and every member of our team. We believe in creating a supportive, collaborative and engaging workplace where every member of the team can thrive. The Firm is committed to diversity in the legal profession and has adopted the Statement of Diversity Principles of the New York City Bar Association. Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive work environment is embodied by the following undertaking:
Bryant Rabbino LLP will not discriminate against employees or applicants for employment because of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability or martial status, and will ensure that all persons are afforded equal employment opportunities.
Further, Bryant Rabbino LLP is committed to being an agent for change as it relates to diversity and inclusion in the communities in which we live and work. Our lawyers have been leaders on diversity matters, including by deeply engaging with lawmakers, regulators and other state and private sector actors to change laws and to set policies in support of making a more diverse and inclusive society. We have worked on these issues in connection with various programs, ranging from “pipeline” projects to increase opportunities for underrepresented youth to programs for diverse entrepreneurs. Our lawyers have also historically held leadership positions in various civic organizations, charities and other bodies that have also served as leaders on issues of diversity and inclusion.
REGARDING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION, WE BELIEVE THAT OUR WALK MATCHES OUR TALK BOTH WITHIN OUR FIRM AND IN THE LARGER COMMUNITY!
