Brown Rudnick LLP. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 01, 2017

I think management would serve the firm well if it worked on retaining its employees. There's quite a bit of uncertainty and disorientation from all the people coming and going.

Pros : With hundreds of top class lawyers and humongous clients, the firm is one of the greatest places to really excel in the large scale law world.
Cons : The turnover can get a bit jarring. It seems like every other day there's a bunch of associates who have left and a bunch who have just joined.

Our commitment to diversity informs every aspect of firm life, from recruiting and hiring, to training and mentoring, to firm management and leadership. We believe our clients and lawyers alike will benefit from a workforce that fully reflects the rich variety of race, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, and ethnicity in our communities.

We realize that success in this mission means more than interviewing and hiring a diverse population. We also focus diligently on retaining and maintaining this workforce. We've established tangible structures to support diversity advancement and encourage candid exchanges of views. From "Dishing Up Diversity" luncheons, to themed displays in our lobbies, to diversity "office hours," we work to create conversation and camaraderie.

Achieving diversity goals requires regular and active attention. But we believe Brown Rudnick, with its culture of openness and acceptance, is well placed to be a leader in law firm diversity initiatives and achievement. We welcome your ideas and participation in this effort.

Our efforts include:

Participation in the Boston Lawyer's Group and Lawyer's Collaborative for Diversity which promotes diversity hiring and retention
Participation in minority events and job fairs
Participation in the Boston Bar Association's (BBA) amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in Fisher v. University of Texas,, supporting the University of Texas at Austin's consideration of race when making undergraduate admissions decisions

Consistently receive top rating of 100 percent on the Corporate Equality Index, an annual survey administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation
