Patmon LLC's diversity group provides diversity legal assessments and compliance counseling to corporations, government entities and non-profit entities. We value diversity as a firm and believe that our client's reputation in the marketplace and in their respective communities is enhanced by taking a comprehensive approach to diversity.

We are often asked by potential clients what diversity legal counseling is and why it matters. Our answer is quite simple: diversity issues affect an organization's performance and profitability, reputation in the marketplace and vulnerability and risk to lawsuits. Unlike traditional diversity training programs, our diversity group includes comprehensive legal evaluations and assessments of an organization's policies, practices, and market profile, among other services. Our assessments and evaluations help our clients identify problems and issues, or ways in which they can improve on existing policies and practices. We partner with your human resources department and existing employment counsel to develop and implement policies and practices that enhance diversity and minimize risk and vulnerability to lawsuits and EEO complaints.

In addition, we have strategic partnerships with large national law firms who perform diversity legal work. Through these partnerships, Patmon LLC's diversity group is able to provide diversity legal assessments and evaluations for large national firms and corporations.

We provide diversity legal counseling in following areas:

  • Legal vulnerability assessments and evaluations
  • Workplace investigations
  • Development and implementation of employment policies and handbooks
  • Development of supplier diversity programs
  • Diversity counseling on corporate governance issues for a board of directors
  • Lawsuit crisis management
  • Diversity communications and market image
  • Development of diversity hiring, promotion and retention policies and plans
