What Our Clients Say
Our Many Faces
Many of the firm’s Fortune 500 clients have inquired about our hiring and retention practices. Diversity and inclusion are the firm’s foundation and strength. We share our story with you.
When a lawsuit came across our desk about a Muslim patron seeking damages after a client’s restaurant unknowingly served her prohibited food, did we Google to determine her complaints? No. We simply asked one of our attorneys of a similar faith and found out everything we needed to know. The resource we had in-house, was enough to discover the Plaintiff’s claim was a fraud.
Florida is full of people who have moved here from across America and around the world. Your defense firm should reflect this melting pot and include people from diverse backgrounds, nationalities, beliefs, cultures and orientation. Since 1992, Hightower, Stratton, Novigrod & Kantor has cultivated a work environment for growth and acceptance as well as empower team members to bring unique ideas and perspectives to claims management. Together, we have successfully protected Florida businesses for nearly three decades.
We continue to evolve with the changing dynamics of the US population. Roughly ⅓ of the firm’s partners are Hispanic or African American. Firmwide, almost ½ of employees identify as racial or ethnic minorities and ⅓ are women attorneys.
