Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB)

Introduction

At McManimon, Scotland and Baumann, LLC (MS&B) we believe that a commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) is vital to realizing our true success as a firm. We are dedicated to DEIB not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it is integral to how we deliver positive results to our clients. It influences how we collaborate with colleagues, recruit, retain, and promote talented lawyers and professional staff. DEIB also informs how we engage communities where we live and work.

Mission

At MS&B, diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging have always been an essential part of who we are.  

We are dedicated to fostering, maintaining, and expanding a diverse and inclusive workplace. We recruit and cultivate exceptional candidates to create a high-quality team.

We value each of our individual differences, experiences and perspectives as an asset that forges stronger relationships, enhances the quality of life for each of us, and enables MS&B to best represent our clients and the communities we serve.
