Diversity, a core company value, is visible in our Legal model. Early into DuPont Legal’s partnering program, it was clear to the legal team that the juries, judges and policymakers were of increasingly diverse backgrounds. This trend impacts a company’s ability to effectively connect with increasingly diverse segments of the legal and business world and to reach them on intellectual, emotional and personal levels. We see diversity as a critical component of the strategy for DuPont to compete globally in the 21st century.
DuPont Legal is proud to be a full business partner in meeting the legal needs of the company with efficiency and quality.
