Diversity and Inclusion

At LOIS, we’ve always embraced the idea that inclusion and a wide spectrum of diversity only make us better.

Diversity and inclusion are fundamental to our success as a law firm, giving us a wealth of different perspectives from which to address our clients’ most pressing issues across a wide spectrum of industries, geographies and cultures. We strive to develop initiatives at LOIS to specifically address diversity and inclusion goals — including for recruiting, professional development, attorney retention and advancement, and cross-cultural awareness — while also continually inculcating inclusion principles into the fabric of the firm.

Diversity and Inclusion Leadership

LOIS’s diversity and inclusion efforts are far-reaching within the firm. Partner Tashia Rasul chairs our Diversity and Inclusion Committee and works with our administrative professionals to develop and sustain recruitment, development and retention strategies intended to increase diversity at all levels of the firm and foster an inclusive workplace culture.
