Women’s Initiative

Labaton Keller Sucharow’s Women's Initiative is dedicated to attracting, retaining, and mentoring a robust network of women lawyers.  The Firm is deeply committed to the advancement and promotion of women.  Labaton Keller Sucharow’s Women’s Initiative was developed to provide women with exposure to client and leadership development opportunities and connections to women leaders both internally and externally.

Through the Firm’s Women’s Initiative, we host seminars, workshops, and networking events to encourage the progress of women lawyers, making them active participants as industry collaborators and celebrated thought leaders.  The Initiative engages influential women who share their experiences, wisdom, and lessons learned, offering workshops covering a broad spectrum from professional development, negotiation, and public speaking to business development and addressing gender inequality in today's legal landscape.

Community Involvement

Labaton Keller Sucharow is committed to giving back to the communities in which our lawyers, staff, and clients live and work.  We recognize the profound influence that legal professionals can have in shaping a community, and we strive to be a force for positive change.  Through financial contributions, volunteerism, and pro bono legal services, we aim to make a meaningful impact.

Labaton Keller Sucharow is committed to providing pro bono legal services to individuals and organizations in need.  Our attorneys dedicate their time and expertise to cases that align with our values and contribute to the well-being of our community.

In addition to pro bono services, this commitment is reflected in the Firm’s community outreach and charitable giving.  Employees regularly engage in community service projects with local non-profit organizations, and community groups.
