Diversity

Weber Gallagher provides and promotes an environment of diversity. We believe that we best serve our clients with our diverse team of people throughout our offices.

Weber Gallagher is committed to achieving and maintaining diversity within its attorney and staff ranks and seeks to build on the foundation of inclusiveness established by the firm’s founders.  A core value at Weber Gallagher is its belief that diversity and inclusion mean a total acceptance of the unique perspectives and experiences we all bring as we work to develop the best possible legal solutions for our valued clients. Real diversity and inclusion involve more than simply acknowledging differences. Weber Gallagher recognizes increases in diversity and inclusion efforts in recruitment, employment and retention will lend itself to sustainable progress and growth of the firm.
