Chae Comments on the State of Diversity in Law Firms

05 April 2018 Of Counsel News
Partner Alexander Chae is quoted in an article published in Of Counsel’s Diversity Report section, “Firms Make Strides but Still Not Achieving Sufficient Progress.” In the article, Chae covers various topics that impact law firm diversity, such as minority retention, comparisons to corporate America and the tendency of millennials to change jobs.

He says that diversity is essential because it creates a more holistic workforce, benefitting both law firms and their clients.

“The people who are purchasing our services are not just white males,” said Chae. “They’re comforted to know that we have people who may come from similar backgrounds, and have similar experiences and perspectives. It’s an absolute necessity to have that. It’s not an option: It’s a must.”
