Butler Snow is pleased to announce that it received the Large Firm Award at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law’s Unity in Diversity Scholarship Banquet, held February 7, 2019, at the Guest House at Graceland.
The Banquet brings together hundreds of judges, lawyers, students, and business leaders from the Memphis community to highlight a wide array of contributions and achievements in the field of diversity, paying particular attention to race, ethnicity, gender, LBGTQ status, and disability status. Funds raised from the banquet support diversity scholarships and initiatives at the Memphis Law and throughout the Memphis legal community. More than $100,000 were raised at the inaugural event in 2017.
“Butler Snow strives to create an environment that fosters inclusion and diversity in every way possible,” said Donald Clark, Jr., chairman of Butler Snow. “We are honored to be recognized for this commitment to equality in our firm and our community.”
