Diversity, For People of Color Inc, Munger Tolles & Olson, Ronald Olson

ALM: Munger Tolles & Olson’s New Partners Class Is 75 Percent Women of Color (TLR Note: of the four, one with the least amount of color is Katherine Ku; have you no shame, Ron Olson, labeling Misty Sanford as Mexican?; FPOC suspect! ; sordid business)

Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP has selected Daniel B. Levin, Miriam Kim, Misty M. Sanford and Katherine H. Ku to join its partnership, effective January 1, 2013.

“We are proud to welcome these esteemed colleagues to our partnership. We believe their great legal talent and diversity will strengthen our law firm and serve our clients and the community well into the future.” Munger Tolles Managing Partner Sandra A. Seville-Jones said. Source:http://www.mto.com/news/headlines/2012/Munger-Tolles-Names-Four-Attorneys-to-Partnership-Ranks

Munger Tolles & Olson sets a diversity record. The Los Angeles-based powerhouse firm just elected Misty Sanford, Miriam Kim, Katherine Ku, and Daniel Levin (pictured above, left to right) to its partnership, effective January 1, 2013. According to the firm, Kim and Ku are Asian American, and Sanford is Mexican American. What’s more, all three women each have two sons; their elevation also set a new record for the firm in both the number and percentage of people of color promoted in a single year. (emphasis added)

The firm didn’t say so, but we assume that Levin is the sole white guy in the group. But hey, we’re cool with that. Source: http://thecareerist.typepad.com/thecareerist/2012/12/news-bites-1212munger-to…

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval.

We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]
