Hughes Hubbard is committed to the individual. We recognize that our success and our future rest solely on the shoulders of our people, and to that end we are committed to recruiting and retaining quality people. There is no Hughes Hubbard type. Our lawyers are diverse and different from one another, and we are enriched by this environment. For example, we are proud to say that we were the first among New York law firms with an African-American woman partner, and our current Firm chair is among the first women to chair a major New York firm. Our commitment to diversity underscores our belief that we can provide the best service to our clients by being ourselves and preserving our individuality.
Even against this backdrop, however, several common qualities run through all of our people here. Our lawyers are passionate and inspired by their careers and their lives. We are committed to providing our clients not only with excellent counsel, but also with quality work in a setting that is pleasant and enjoyable. At Hughes Hubbard, our lawyers are as likely to discover the practice area that will become the focus of their careers as they are to find people whom they will call friends long after their careers are over.
