Diversity & Inclusion

{ Layer One Image }
  • "In differentiation, not in uniformity, lies the path of progress.”

     -Louis Brandeis

  • Making Diversity a Priority at Nutter
    Nutter's efforts are led by its Diversity and Inclusion Committee -- composed of both current and former members of our Executive, Legal Personnel and Hiring Committees and associates.

  • At Nutter, we believe that “differentiation” -- what we call “diversity” -- fosters the highest quality legal service, the strongest client relationships, and the broadest community involvement. We strive, then, to ensure that traditionally underrepresented groups work at every level of the firm and to advance our position as a leader in the Boston-wide effort to build a legal community that reflects the wider communities we serve.

We strive to ensure that traditionally underrepresented groups work at every level of our firm, which has gone a long way toward advancing our position as a leader in the Boston-wide effort to build an inclusive legal community, reflective of the diverse populations that we all serve. 

Nutter's efforts are led by its Diversity and Inclusion Committee -- composed of both current and former members of our Executive, Legal Personnel and Hiring Committees and associates. This committee’s focus includes the following:

  • Setting firm-wide expectations for an inclusive culture
  • Supporting recruitment and retention efforts that focus on traditionally underrepresented groups
  • Learning from and applying best practices of other institutions and industries
  • Measuring the firm’s successes and shortcomings, consistently assessing the Committee’s own impact
  • Challenging the status quo when necessary
  • Communicating the Committee’s mission, the action it requires, and the success it promises

Nutter’s commitment to diversity reaches from its top management to its roots. Our current activities continue Nutter’s over 135-year history of commitment to recruiting and retaining talented and qualified people, regardless of race, gender, color, age, disability, religion, ancestry, sexual orientation, national origin, or marital or parental status. Recent examples of Nutter supporting diversity and inclusion in the communities include our partnership with the ACC hosting the half day summit, The Diversity Imperative: Developing Successful Strategies to Achieve Diversity Leadership within the Legal Profession, as well as our commitment to our on-going Nutter Speaker Series for Diversity and Inclusion.
