OVERVIEW

Hundreds of senior LGBT and Ally leaders of the global legal industry convened on Monday, April 20th for the second annual Out in Law: US LGBT Leadership Summit hosted by Richard A. Rosenbaum, CEO of Greenberg Traurig, at New York Law School. Out in Law brought together executives from leading global law firms to share strategy around issues at the intersection of LGBT and the law.

“Greenberg Traurig appreciates the opportunity to work with Out Leadership to assist in the support and furthering of the organization’s mission of LGBT equality throughout the business sector,” Rosenbaum Said. “With over 1,800 attorneys in our 37 offices around the world, we value diversity, equality and inclusion and support the communities in which we live and work. We are excited about our leadership role in this historic summit.”

“Greenberg Traurig understands and embraces the moral, legal, and business case for LGBT equality,” Rosenbaum continued. “We are proud of our work in this area and encourage others to join us. From our pro bono work in overturning Florida’s same-sex adoption ban, to our robust LGBT/Ally affinity group, which includes firm members at the most senior level, since our inception, we have built an inclusive environment where individuals are encouraged to be authentic. Our commitment to helping change the world for the better has no gender, racial or religious borders, which is so important in today’s environment.”
