We have over 200 lawyers in 30 offices across the country, including five affiliate offices. Adhering to the principles of the FH Promise, our attorneys strive to provide clients with sound legal advice, practical counseling and excellent client service.
FordHarrison is managed by managing partner C. Lash Harrison and co-managing partner Herbert Gerson. The firm is governed by an Executive Committee that consists of seven diverse firm partners who are charged with overseeing every aspect of the firm's operation and development. The Executive Committee meets at least twice per month. In addition, we have regional managing partners who oversee regions and serve as liaisons to our individual offices. Finally, an office managing partner manages the day-to-day activities of each office. The office managing partners and members of the Executive Committee together form the firm's Management Group, which meets quarterly.
FH Promise. The FH Promise is a set of principles that guides how the firm delivers legal services and works with clients. The firm conducted extensive research, spoke to lawyers and professional staff throughout the firm, as well as to clients, about the elements of exceptional client service. From this we developed the FH Promise and established firm-wide guidelines for how we provide first-class service to our clients. Whether a client chooses our firm to defend a lawsuit, assist with a labor matter, help with benefit or immigration issues, or provide timely counseling to avoid litigation, we are committed to making that experience the best it can be.
Our programs help FordHarrison attorneys to achieve their individual professional goals and meet the ever-changing needs of our clients. Programs are in place for both our partners and our associates. We recognize the value of investing in the training and education of attorneys as a means of continuing the progress of the firm as a whole and advancing individual attorneys' careers at FordHarrison.
A philosophy to capitalize on emerging technologies has made our firm an innovator in the use of technology to enhance all aspects of our law practice and client service. We are committed to getting the most out of cutting-edge technology and take pride in offering our clients the benefits of up-to-the minute advances in information technology.
In addition to public service through volunteering and fundraising for local and national charitable non-profit organizations, our lawyers also provide pro bono legal services to non-profit organizations all over the country. We believe our lawyers have a professional responsibility to provide legal services to those of limited means, and that pro bono service is an opportunity for the professional development and growth of all lawyers.
