As a firm that prides itself on being forward-focused and sensing ahead, diversity and inclusion are key characteristics of the Nixon Peabody brand. We know that businesses that embrace diversity and practice inclusion will be better positioned to attract and retain talent and as a result will provide better overall services to their customers. Through its commitment to diversity and inclusion, Nixon Peabody is applying the collective intelligence of our many perspectives to create a more inclusive workplace and better serve our clients.
