At Kaufman & Canoles, we not only recognize the social necessity
of a diversity policy, but we also understand that it is a crucial
factor in our business success. To compete in a global marketplace and
to serve corporate clients who express their diversity expectation in
their representation, we must also demand diversity and equality within
the firm. Our future depends on the recruitment and retention of
talented, young and experienced lawyers. We would be remiss to exclude
such a large talent base by not embracing diversity among our attorneys.
As the former chairman of a Municipal Civil Service Commission and a
member of Kaufman & Canoles' litigation team for more than 32
years, I learned the value diversity efforts bring to an organization.
As Chairman of the Diversity Committee at Kaufman & Canoles, I have
made that same personal commitment to the success of our diversity

Kaufman & Canoles is committed to a policy of equal employment
opportunity that spans all aspects of the employment process. From
recruiting and hiring to training and promotion, our EEO policy is
dedicated to the spirit of equal opportunity.
Equal Employment Opportunity for all is a very important Firm
philosophy. We will evaluate all applicants and employees without
regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age,
non-disqualifying disability or history of military service. We will
also make all reasonable accommodations required by law for qualified
persons with a disability.
We want to stress our seriousness regarding this policy. We will
take action to ensure that qualified applicants and employees are not
subjected to unlawful discrimination. This includes, but is not limited
to, recruitment, employment, assignments, promotions, reassignments or
transfers, disciplinary matters, establishing rates of pay or other
compensation and selection for training programs.
All management personnel share responsibility for implementation and
compliance with this policy, and performance in this area will be
continually evaluated, as is performance on other aspects of Firm
