Tucker Ellis LLP is proud to announce that it has been selected to receive the Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) Law Firm Diversity Award for 2017.

The award honors a law firm that demonstrates a significant commitment to diversity. Tucker Ellis was selected based on its policies and practices, as well as its many civic contributions.

“We make diversity and inclusion a priority at Tucker Ellis,” said Sanford Watson, partner and chair of the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee. “We’re fortunate to have leadership that encourages us to celebrate our rich cultural backgrounds and use them to support our communities, our clients, our firm, and one another. We couldn’t be more honored to receive this award.”

“At Tucker Ellis, we aspire to provide a better experience to everyone than they can get from any other law firm – and that goal extends beyond our clients, as it includes everyone who works here and the communities in which we live and work,” added Managing Partner Joe Morford. “While we still have work to do on the diversity and inclusion front, we work at it each day, and we’re proud to receive this award in recognition of our many efforts.”

DRI’s Law Firm Diversity Award will be presented on October 5 at the 2017 DRI Annual Meeting in Chicago.
