FKB is committed to expanding opportunities for all members of the legal professions. We recognize that support for all, including those historically underrepresented in our fields of practice, is central to American life and business. Juries — our decision-makers — reflect North America’s diversity. We consider it vital that legal professionals expand their awareness of cultural impacts on verdict decision-making and case presentation strategies respectful of these differences.
Accordingly, FKB actively promotes diversity in our recruitment efforts, in our leadership positions, and in the choices of local counsel, expert witnesses and mediators involved in professional liability claims. We welcome and encourage people of all backgrounds to join us in our mission, educational activities, and leadership roles.
