Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has received a Diversity Leadership Award from the Nashville Bar Association (NBA), marking the 15th time the NBA has honored the firm for its commitment to diversity since the diversity recognition program began in 1994.
The firm was honored at the NBA’s annual Law Day Luncheon held May 5 in Nashville. Bradley attorney Nathan H. Ridley, who serves as counsel with the firm and as the NBA’s current president, presided over the luncheon.
The Diversity Leadership Award recognizes law firms that hire ethnically diverse 1L and 2L summer associates, increase the number of ethnically diverse lawyers in their Nashville office, hire ethnically diverse summer interns, and/or have a diversity-based scholarship program.
“Diversity at Bradley is both a goal and an asset in our practice,” said Bradley’s Nashville Office Managing Partner Lela Hollabaugh. “The firm is grateful for this award from the Nashville Bar Association in recognition of our ongoing commitment to and initiatives promoting diversity.”
Diversity and equality are core values at Bradley. The firm’s success relies on the ingenuity, intelligence, and interpersonal skills of its people. By employing attorneys and staff from a variety of backgrounds, the firm leverages a wide range of perspectives that help it achieve the results that it expects and its clients demand. Workplace diversity and equality are essential to Bradley’s business strategies, professional ideals, and relationships with the clients and communities it serves.
