Diversity

Burr & Forman LLP is committed to recruiting, hiring, developing, and promoting lawyers and staff without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, military and protected veteran status, sexual orientation or disability.

At Burr & Forman, diversity is an important issue for one simple reason: a variety of opinions make our firm better; it helps us serve our clients more effectively. If our opinions are formed by our experiences, then we logically get a broader perspective, and a greater range of views when we add people from differing backgrounds.

We recognize that our ability to serve our clients is strengthened by establishing a diverse workforce in which differences are accepted and valued on an inclusive basis.
