Tom Pack Authors Article on Diversity and Inclusion in Defense Research Institute's For The Defense

December 12, 2017

Tom Pack, a member of Maslon's Litigation Group, has authored an article for the Defense Research Institute's For The Defense, titled "Diversity and Inclusion: Challenges and Successes at One Mid-Sized Law Firm." Tom discusses the challenges mid-size law firms face when it comes to recruiting and retaining diverse attorneys, including attorneys of color, LGBTQ attorneys, and attorneys with other diverse, intersectional identities. He then details Maslon's diversity and inclusion efforts in three major categories: community building and attorney retention, marketing, and supporting the community.

Tom represents businesses and individuals in trade secret disputes, complex intellectual property litigation, and suits involving labor and employment issues in the technology industry. Tom also maintains an active pro bono practice in the civil rights and immigration law fields.
