Davis Wright & Tremaine


Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is part of the fabric of Davis Wright Tremaine – central to who we are and what we do.  Our vision is to foster a culture where all talented individuals—including those who are traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession—can have, and can see, a path to success.  We are dedicated to this vision because diverse, equitable, and inclusive teams reflect the world we serve, create a more engaging firm environment, and equip us with the most cutting-edge solutions to our clients’ most complex challenges. Beyond that, DEI is simply the right thing to do.

Our commitment to DEI begins at the very top, with the active participation in our DEI efforts by the firmwide Managing Partner and the Executive Committee.  Our leadership teams across practice groups and offices include members of underrepresented groups.  Our Executive Committee, our highest governing body, is presently 50% diverse.  81% of our Practice Group Chairs and 50% of our Partners-in-Charge identify as diverse. Women and traditionally underrepresented minorities also serve on key firmwide committees, including our Attorney Evaluation Committee, Share Committee, Readiness Evaluation Committee, and Office Hiring Committees.
