Our firm is made up of individuals with entrepreneurial spirits and a broad range of backgrounds and experiences. Our inclusive culture is respectful of all people and aims to honor the uniqueness of every client, partner and employee.
Attorneys and staff can participate in Inclusion Networks which promote understanding, spark innovation and celebrate difference. These groups focus on unique internal audiences, such as those connected by race and ethnicity, gender, identity and sexual orientation. They aim to elevate cultural awareness, develop leaders, and fuel retention within the firm.
Lathrop GPM inclusion networks reflect and model our inclusive culture. Through these networks, we build trusting relationships, find common ground and identify areas for collaboration within the firm, as well as across our industry and in our communities, to create solutions.
