Munger, Tolles, & Olson


At Munger, Tolles & Olson, a diverse workforce improves our ability to serve the needs of our clients and creates a more dynamic workplace for our attorneys.

As a result, diversity, equity, and inclusion have always been – and continue to be – a cornerstone of our firm. The firm was founded in 1962 by a group of attorneys that included a woman. Since then, our managing partners have included two women, a woman of color, an LGBTQ man, and an African-American man. We remain a leader in diversity hiring, retention and promotion, and we consistently beat national averages in the number of women and diverse lawyers in our associate and partner ranks. We also work hard to foster an inclusive environment where all of our lawyers can thrive and contribute fully and authentically to all aspects of firm life.
