Our Focus

The Bingham Greenebaum Doll team is comprised of driven, hard-working individuals collaborating to develop creative and innovative legal practices. We seek new team members with unique perspectives and diverse backgrounds who share the values that define our culture. We look for candidates who share our entrepreneurial attitude, who are driven, who demonstrate grit and resilience, who have intellectual curiosity, exceptional interpersonal skills, and are enthusiastic about owning projects and initiatives.

We believe that combining experiences, knowledge, and ideas from individuals with different backgrounds allows us to provide our clients with the most innovative and effective solutions. We encourage all of our attorneys and staff members to recognize the value of diversity in creating a fulfilling work environment and better results for our clients. We are always learning, and we believe that the best way to improve on our ideas is to seek out opinions and perspectives that are different from our own.

Recruiting Efforts: Diverse Backgrounds and Perspectives

Bingham Greenebaum Doll actively pursues opportunities to engage with people of various backgrounds who are interested in the legal profession.

We are one of the three leading sponsors of the Indianapolis Bar Association (IndyBar) Annual Diversity Job Fair. This event is one of the region’s largest job fairs focused on connecting diverse candidates with career opportunities in Indianapolis, a city with a thriving tech economy and amenities that cater to the needs of highly-skilled professionals. Our attorneys also participate in several other minority job fairs throughout the year, including the ABA Council on Legal Education Opportunity.

Furthermore, our Firm has proudly signed the American Bar Association’s “Pledge for Change: Disability Diversity in the Legal Profession.” This pledge upholds our commitment to promote diversity in the legal profession as well as encourage others to make this same commitment, specifically relating to disability diversity. To learn more about The Pledge and to view the full List of Pledge Signatories, please visit the ABA’s website.
