Fish & Richardson Receives 2018 Compass Award from Leadership Council on Legal Diversity
Fish & Richardson has received the 2018 Compass Award from the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) in recognition of its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Fish was among 62 firms nationwide to receive this inaugural award for its participation in and support of LCLD's mission and programs.
For the past seven years, Fish has participated in the LCLD Fellows Program, which works to produce a generation of attorneys with strong leadership skills who are committed to fostering diversity within their individual institutions and the profession at large. Fish is also active in LCLD's Pathfinders program, which is designed to train early-career attorneys in critical career development strategies, and LCLD's Law School Mentoring Program, which pairs first year law students with a mentor who will follow them through their three years of law school.
"We are honored to receive this award and proud to partner with LCLD as we work together to build a more diverse legal profession," said Peter Devlin, President of Fish & Richardson. "Having a diverse team enhances the quality of legal services we provide to our clients, and we work tirelessly to promote a creative, respectful and inclusive culture that values the diversity of people, experiences, perspectives, and capabilities."
In 2005, Fish launched its own 1L Diversity Fellowship Program, to provide annual fellowships to diverse first-year law students across the U.S. For the past five years, Fish's 1L Diversity Fellows have participated in the LCLD "Scholars Summit" with diverse 1L students from firms across the country.
Fish was named a "Top Performer" by LCLD in 2016 and 2017 for being one of the most active and supportive members of LCLD and its mission.
LCLD is made up of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. For information, visit www.lcldnet.org.
