Embracing Diversity to Create One Squire Sanders
Diversity comes naturally to Squire Sanders as a global law firm. We embrace a one-firm philosophy, operating as a single unit rather than a loose confederation of offices and practices, and each year our lawyers spend countless hours collaborating with colleagues across a variety of geographies, languages and cultures to find optimal solutions for clients. This interchange provides our lawyers the opportunity to benefit from the broad experience and cultural mix of our firm and is a vital building block for bridging differences and creating the personal and professional chemistry that makes Squire Sanders a success.
But diversity isn’t a new concept at Squire Sanders. In 1964 – the year civil rights activist Dr. King won the Nobel Peace Prize – we were the first major Cleveland-based law firm to adopt a nondiscriminatory hiring policy, which we continue to follow in each of our locations across the globe today. We recognize diversity as a core strength, evidenced by the notable number of women and minorities in management and leadership positions.
