Diversity at King Branson
King Branson is a certified minority owned-and-operated law firm. Our mission is to provide the highest caliber of representation to clients who share our commitment to the continued diversity of the profession. We are also committed to working with minority- and women-owned vendors to the greatest extent possible in operating the firm.
Within King Branson, we have a core commitment to diversity throughout our workforce. By hiring and retaining people from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, we have created a work environment that benefits both our clients and our people. Our commitment to diversity is an integral part of our drive for excellence and dedication to providing the highest level of service to our clients.
King Branson monitors the firm's hiring efforts through all phases, from the initial review of resumes through interviews and final hiring decisions, to ensure that the candidate pool is diverse and the hiring process is fair. We believe that, through such constant vigilance, we will preserve our record of hiring a diverse group of lawyers of the highest caliber. We also regularly participate in programs that provide an opportunity to recruit women and minority candidates, such as meetings sponsored by the National Bar Association and the Minority Corporate Counsel Association.
We believe that the best way to keep and retain all lawyers is to ensure that they receive their fair share of high-quality assignments, provide them with the opportunity to work with each of the firm's senior lawyers, and entrust them with more responsibility when they have demonstrated the ability to assume a more prominent role. King Branson actively monitors the assignment process and the development of its minority attorneys to ensure that they are receiving equal opportunities, based on merit, to take on challenging work and to assume increasing levels of responsibility.
King Branson is a proud member of the MCCA Firm Affilliate Network.
