Diverse People

Norman C. Kleinberg

The Firm is really comprised of a collection of individual lawyers, each of whom has great intellectual skills and legal skills. But also they are a group of highly individualized persons with different backgrounds and all kinds of indicia of diversity. That’s been true for the entire time that I’ve been at this Firm, and it’s one of the reasons I initially focused on Hughes Hubbard -- because it was committed to a rich diversity in terms of the practice, and also the people that populate the Firm.

Unique

Yasuo Okamoto

I think -- for a Wall Street firm, I think this is a very unique firm. We do not, you know, flaunt it all the time, but it’s part of us. And I think every one of us is a living example of the diversity of the Firm in terms of culture, in terms of language, in terms of race, sex -- you name it. We’re very, very open, and I don’t really know that many firms that are truly, truly open like ours.

Diversity

Daniel H. Weiner

You can go here as far as you want to go based on your ability and your enthusiasm and your energy. It doesn’t matter what school you went to or where your parents were raised. It’s all about you as an individual. I think that’s a very important thing, and that’s something that makes us stand out from a lot of other firms.
Careers People ImageHughes 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.
