Allen Matkins recently received the 2015 AT&T Legal Department Diversity Award in the medium law firm category. The fourth annual award recognizes one small, medium and large firm nationally for their activities and accomplishments promoting diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Allen Matkins and the small and large firm recipients were honored at AT&T’s Annual Legal Conference in Dallas, TX, on February 26, 2015, where firm partners Scott J. Leipzig and Emily L. Murray accepted the award on the firm’s behalf.
“The attorneys and staff at Allen Matkins believe that diversity enhances the services the firm provides, the environment in which our employees work, and our ability to attract, retain and promote talented lawyers and staff,” says Allen Matkins Partner and Diversity Committee Chair Baldwin Lee. “We define diversity as a network of people who are different races or who have different cultures in our workforce, including people of color, women, and LGBT personnel. Like all of our clients, Allen Matkins shares a wonderful relationship with AT&T and we appreciate the similarities in our core values, particularly a commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
