Commitment to Diversity

At Banner & Witcoff we believe that people with diverse experiences produce creative thinking, multiple perspectives on issues, and innovative problem-solving techniques in the practice of intellectual property law. That is why we are committed to creating and fostering a firm culture that values the differences among its attorneys, legal professionals, and support staff.

Differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual-orientation, education, culture, religion, age, physical ability, and socioeconomic background strengthen our successes as a firm through better representation of our clients and our employees.

With this understanding, Banner & Witcoff is dedicated to diversity, equal opportunity, and a culture of mutual respect within the firm and in our relationships with our clients. Our firm is committed to recruiting, retaining, mentoring, and promoting a diverse workforce.

Banner & Witcoff is also engaged in organizations which promote diversity within the legal spectrum. Finally, we have implemented a strong equal opportunity policy that values the differences of individual attorneys and support staff to ensure that our commitments are met.

One example of the firmís ongoing commitment to diversity is the annual award of the Donald W. Banner Diversity Scholarship for Law Students.
