Law Firm Lauded For Inclusion, Diversity

 RIDGELAND, MS -  Butler, Snow, O'Mara, Stevens & Cannada, PLLC, is one of only three law firms nationwide selected as an inaugural recipient of the AT&T Legal Department Diversity and Inclusion Award. The award is based on activities and accomplishments that show a commitment to diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.


"Our firm works together as one team to provide strategic solutions for our clients, and we firmly believe that our varied perspectives and life experiences enhance the success of our clients," said John C. Henegan, Co-Chair of Butler Snow's Diversity Committee. "Diversity has been and remains a key initiative in our firm that benefits our firm, our diverse client base, and our clients' ability to serve their present and future customers."

Butler Snow was recognized at an awards dinner during a legal conference at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

"In 2010, more than 48 percent of our attorneys and staff were women or minorities, and our firm is active in participation and sponsorship of diverse organizations and events," said Donald Clark Jr., Chairman of Butler Snow.

The AT&T legal department's Diversity and Inclusion Program strongly promotes diversity in both the department and the broader legal community, and the award honors outside firms that have made particularly strong commitments in this area.

"As a diverse member of the team servicing AT&T as a client for more than eight years, we have equally benefited from our relationship," said Butler Snow Attorney Malissa Winfield.  "We recognize that diversity is not just the right thing to do; but, more importantly, it makes a company stronger to include diverse members who bring varying perspectives to business and legal matters."
