Sirote & Permutt has made diversity in the workplace a key pillar of the firm since we opened our doors nearly 70 years ago. Because we understand that everyone benefits from a diverse group of people coming together to share ideas shaped by their individual experiences, Sirote & Permutt is home to lawyers from a wide array of backgrounds.
The promotion of religious and racial tolerance always has been and always will be an important aspect of our firm. Several Sirote attorneys were at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement and were involved in some of the most significant causes of the era.
Today, more than a quarter of our attorneys are women or minorities. In the 1970s we hired our first female attorney, and she became one of Alabama’s first female partners at a law firm. A few years later Sirote became the first major law firm in Alabama to welcome an African-American partner, again leading the state in diversity.
Our attorneys hold numerous professional and civic leadership roles and have been recognized locally and statewide for their contributions to the communities in which we practice law.
At Sirote & Permutt, we don’t just talk about inclusion and diversity. We live it every day, and we believe our people and our clients continue to benefit significantly because of it.
