Sheppard Mullin is a firm that truly puts clients first. And this sets it apart. The firm doesn’t just give lip service to client service. Sheppard Mullin regularly gives ‘Clients First’ awards to attorneys and staff members who ‘go the extra mile’ for clients. Client service is part of the culture and permeates everything the firm does.

The firm recognizes the importance of diversity and the need to create a workplace of inclusion. Law firms need, and clients demand, a team of attorneys that is as diverse as the world in which they practice. Achieving and maintaining diversity is key to effective client service – a core value of the firm. The firm repeatedly gets a 100% ranking from the Human Rights Campaign.

At Sheppard Mullin, the firm encourages attorneys to help pro bono clients. Coast-to-coast, the firm has compiled an admirable record in providing community service and legal services to those in need. The firm achieved two historic victories on behalf of New York City’s persons with disabilities that were featured in American Lawyer magazine. One of the firm’s partners is the recipient of the American Bar Association’s Pro Bono Publico Award which honors those who have enhanced the human dignity of others by improving or delivering volunteer legal services to the nation’s poor and disadvantaged.
