As a firm, we believe in the importance of extending our reach beyond the office, and we encourage our employees to be active contributors to their local communities. Throughout Fragomen, we have cultivated an employee population that is as richly diverse as are our clients--and the countries that they are coming from and going to. By embracing our differences, our employees enjoy a vibrant, creative work environment and gain insight into other cultures and life experiences. Our employees'diversity gives us a heightened understanding of our clients'needs which manifests in our effective immigration solutions. Fragomen has a long history of promoting women and ethnic minorities to prominent positions within the firm's leadership, as illustrated by The American Lawyer (ALM Media Properties, LLC) ranking our U.S. practice as one of the top five law firms for ethnic diversity since 2012. In 2019, Law360 (Portfolio Media, Inc.) ranked Fragomen first amongst firms of its size for female attorneys in the U.S. based on the percentage of attorneys and partners that are women, and first among the best law firms for female partners. Law360 also ranked Fragomen first amongst firms of its size for minority attorneys, based on the firm's minority representation at the partner level, non-partner levels, and total number of minority attorneys (2019). Women and minority partners have long played a critical role on the firm's Executive Committee, and serve in leadership roles on various firm committees and in local offices. Our commitment to fostering a dynamic, diverse workplace is reflected in our employee population. For example, more than sixty-five percent of our employees worldwide are women and more than forty percent of our employees in the U.S. are minorities--statistics which are unusual for law firms.

As the gateway to the American dream for so many, New York City is home to some of the best and brightest minds in the world.

With so many multinational companies headquartered or located in New York City, there is a strong need for support of complex, multinational immigration programs that provide a holistic approach to immigration.

With some of the seminal minds in the immigration industry today, our teams of professionals keep pace with "the city that never sleeps."

Our New York professionals are as diverse as the clients we serve. Our professionals and staff speak a multitude of languages and hail from around the world. We believe that this diversity helps us to empathize with our clients while keeping our finger on the pulse of immigration on a local and global scale. Fragomen in New York believes in the importance of giving back to the community. For example, the firm has sponsored a Fragomen Fellow at the City Bar Justice Center, an association of the Bar of the City of New York since 2007. The Fellow is integrally involved in several community outreach efforts?including playing a leadership role in addressing the latest unaccompanied minor child crisis.
