Founded in Diversity

Consistent commitment to diversity comes naturally to a firm founded by women attorneys. As the first female owned partnership in the City of Chicago, Lowis & Gellen understands the strength that comes with diversity. Since its inception over 23 years ago, Lowis & Gellen has remained committed to building a diverse, inclusive workplace, inspired by the notion that our firm should reflect not only the diversity of the world we live in but also the clients we represent.  The firm has welcomed partners, associates and support staff of all religions, races, sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds.

At Lowis & Gellen, diversity is not viewed through one metric.  Instead, the firm believes that the more diverse our team, the stronger our creativity and service to our clients.  To that end, the firm is committed to not only recruiting individuals from all walks of life but, more importantly, to helping those individuals succeed and thrive in a supportive environment.

Our Diversity Committee reflects the diverse attorneys at Lowis & Gellen as well as the diversity of our clients and community.  The Diversity Committee focuses on not only strengthening the internal fabric of the firm but also expanding firm diversity initiatives to address the community at large.  The firm lends its support to many groups including VOWS (Veterans of Wall Street), an organization committed to helping recruit and employ veterans, Equality Illinois, an organization committed to supporting LGBTQ issues, Lawyers’ Lend a Hand, an organization committed to tutoring low income students, Lawyers’ Committee For Better Housing, an organization that provides pro bono legal services to low income residents, and the Association of Corporate Counsels’ Diversity Internship Program.

We are committed to providing excellent legal service and high quality representation the firm was founded upon, and supporting our diverse group of attorneys is key to fulfilling that goal.
