Axiom lawyers are more diverse than industry standards according to the ABA and NALP

Commitment to diversity and 
inclusion is fundamental to Axiom

For legal departments, diversity is now a business requirement. At Axiom, diversity is core to our values and our business, and we’re proud to report that the lawyers and employees who work for us reflect this.

Our lawyers are more diverse than industry standards according to the ABA and NALP. We earned a “best place to work” for LGBTQ employees from HRC, and we are committed to a journey where inclusion goes beyond gender, race, and ethnicity.

More from Our CEO
Diversity in teams and businesses brings enhanced creativity in problem-solving, innovation, and leadership – all stemming from a group of people who have seen and achieved infinitely more collectively than any one person might draw on alone.
