Prince Lobel Tye joins the Boston Bar Association in proudly supporting and endorsing the American Bar Association (ABA) Resolution 113 and general counsel commitment letter. The Resolution urges legal services providers to expand and create opportunities for diverse attorneys and it encourages clients to direct a greater percentage of their legal work to diverse attorneys. A report on the Resolution includes a model survey, which would allow prospective clients to view the diversity of providers.
The Boston Bar Association (BBA) is the first metropolitan bar association to endorse the Resolution and general counsel commitment letter. The BBA will also convene a group of bar leaders to collaborate with other metropolitan bar associations to ensure the implementation of the Resolution and survey in the Boston legal community and throughout the country.
Prince Lobel Tye continues its long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal community. As the 2015 Recipient of the Rosoff Workplace Diversity Initiative Award, the firm was recognized for its pledge to provide job opportunities to young people of diverse backgrounds throughout the City of Boston. The firm’s mission statement recognizes its responsibility to afford all lawyers and staff an ability to develop their talents fully. Women@Prince and the firm’s Diversity Committee promote respect and inclusion in the firm’s culture to create a dynamic, supportive, and collaborative place to work.
“Prince Lobel is an institution where diversity and inclusion are engrained in our core,” said Craig Tateronis, Prince Lobel Tye’s Managing Partner. “We firmly support the ABA and the BBA in their commitment to advancing diversity in the legal profession. As a firm, we will continue to advocate and facilitate conversation to successfully implement the Resolution’s goals.”
