Global immigration firm Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, LLP is the premiere legal resource for companies looking to address the immigration challenges that affect their business and employees. For almost 60 years, Fragomen has been a trusted advisor to companies around the world, helping to tailor comprehensive compliance programs and hiring strategies in accordance with each company’s unique business objectives. The nature of the firm’s practice produces a stark diversity in clientele that is mirrored in its own ranks, making it also one of the industry’s leaders in employee diversity.
In helping clients to retain top intellectual resources from all around the world, Fragomen’s global perspective has naturally attracted a culturally-rich group of top legal talent, without the use of any initiatives or programs. “Diversity has been a natural part of our firm since its inception. It is part of our DNA and comes very instinctively to us,” says partner Cynthia Lange. While Fragomen’s firmwide composition has evolved organically, there is no question to how individual growth can be attributed. “Employees who produce quality work will excel, regardless of their gender or heritage. That’s all there is to it,” says partner Freddi Weintraub.
For the past three years, the firm’s workforce has comprised at least fifty percent women and minorities; in the United States, that number rises to more than seventy-five percent. This rare achievement in diversity is even more impressive in the firm’s leadership: forty-eight percent of Fragomen’s partners are women or minorities. “We are proud of the fact that our firm’s leadership proves to be diverse in nature,” says Gwen Robosson, managing partner of the firm’s New Jersey office. “Overall, I believe that Fragomen’s strength lies in the high caliber of professionals that we employ worldwide.”
