One of the greatest strengths of Debevoise is our community. This has been true throughout the history of the firm. More recently, we have built upon that strong foundation with specific community-building initiatives and firmwide events.

In 2021, Debevoise hosted its second Attorneys of Color Retreat where over 100 attorneys of color, firm partners, alumni and clients convened for two half-days of connection, thought leadership and fun. The theme of the retreat was “How Attorneys of Color Can Position Themselves for Success,” with the keynote speech given by Professor Kenji Yoshino, Chief Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at New York University School of Law.
