Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Finn Dixon & Herling is strongly committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within our firm and the legal profession.


Individually and collectively, our lawyers are recognized leaders in DEI initiatives.

Our entire partnership is involved in the firm’s current effort to join the small number of midsize law firms in the U.S. certified as adherents of the Mansfield Rule, a set of guidelines designed to diversify law firm leadership. 

One of our partners, the first woman presidentially appointed to be U.S. Attorney in the history of Connecticut, chaired a Connecticut Bar Association police reform task force formed in response to the murder of George Floyd. The task force’s report led to legislative action by the Connecticut state legislature. 

FDH is pursuing certification for compliance with the Mansfield Rule guidelines for diverse law firm leadership.
Connecticut Bar Association

FDH proudly sponsors a scholarship through the Connecticut Asian Pacific Bar Association, in honor of our late partner Justin Shigemii.
FDH partners with the Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity in sponsoring an annual CT General Counsel Roundtable on Maintaining a Diverse Legal Environment.
