Our Commitment

At KMK, we embrace the unique characteristics of all our lawyers and staff, which ultimately fosters individual success as well as the success of our firm. We believe that a diverse work environment attracts the best and the brightest people in the legal community and provides the most creative, innovative solutions for our clients.

As a result, we are committed to developing and maintaining a diverse and inclusive work setting at all levels. And we strive to attract people of diverse backgrounds and characteristics, including but not limited to, race, gender, ethnicity, cultural heritage, disability, religion, and sexual orientation.

Our goal is to continually foster a diverse work environment that provides for creativity, productivity, a sense of inclusion, and effective leadership—where our lawyers and staff feel enriched and empowered to provide client solutions that continue to exceed expectations.

KMK was committed to offering opportunities to lawyers from diverse backgrounds long before diversity and inclusive hiring became prominent. For example, in 1972, KMK became the first major law firm in Cincinnati to hire an African American lawyer. In 1980, KMK hired its first female associate. And, in 1997, KMK became the first major law firm in Cincinnati to elect an African American female lawyer to partner.

While we are proud of our early efforts to encourage diversity, we understand that supporting and encouraging fairness and inclusivity is an ongoing challenge. We are dedicated to growing the strength of our future firm through celebrating and nurturing inclusion at every level of our firm, which is why we developed a comprehensive diversity mission statement, which can be viewed here.
