Our DEI commitment

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION

PROACTIVE MINDSET.
NAVIGATING CHANGE.

We commit to diversity, equity and inclusion throughout the firm and the work we do.

At Hausfeld, we strive to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all. We believe that embracing and celebrating our differences is not only the right thing to do, but it also enriches our work, enhances our perspectives, and drives innovation. We are committed to building a culture that values and respects every individual, and we strive to create equal opportunities for everyone to thrive.

We seek ways for continuous improvement through our own actions and the legal work we do. Under the leadership of our DEI Partners, Reena A. Gambhir and Lucy Pert, our global DEI Committee and dedicated working groups (Racial Justice, LGBTQ+, Women's Alliance, Social Inclusion and Disability Rights), we are continually examining and improving all aspects of our recruiting, hiring, training, career progression, leadership development, policies, and practices to ensure a diverse and dynamic work environment. By nurturing collegiality and inclusiveness within our firm, we know that we produce better results for our clients and the communities we serve.

The ethos of the firm is unique – there is a real sense of fairness, the partners are protective of their associates’ wellbeing and there is a real sense that everyone likes one another and enjoys working there.’

From junior associate to senior partner, Hausfeld is committed to ensuring every voice is heard, and to elevating those of us who don’t always get a voice. As a woman of color, Hausfeld has encouraged me to manage high-profile litigation, take on leadership roles, and develop a courtroom presence, demonstrating how Hausfeld lives its ideals.

Tom  Bolster

The passion we all share for upholding justice fosters a truly inclusive atmosphere where my faith and day-to-day work are compatible while also mutually re-enforcing. For example, I was able to set up, with other colleagues in London, a vibrant discussion group where everyone can freely discuss issues of justice, compassion and forgiveness (amongst others).

The firm has supported me throughout my journey, allowing me the flexibility to flourish at home as well as at work and giving me the self-confidence to reach higher than I might ever have imagined in a more traditional law firm. I am very proud to be a part of the Hausfeld family and I love that my daughters are growing up believing that they can be a force for good.
