"A commitment to diversity is among WilmerHale's guiding principles. Diversity influences how we recruit our lawyers and staff, the type of pro bono cases we undertake, and the philanthropic endeavors we pursue in the community. Diversity makes us better lawyers and advocates," said WilmerHale Partner Mark Selwyn. "We are very proud to have partnered with the California Bar Foundation and our client Intel to help advance the cause of diversity in the legal profession, and we are honored to be distinguished by the California Bar Foundation."
