Murthy Law Firm is a Top Minority-Owned Business12 Dec 2012
The Murthy Law Firm has kicked it up a notch – four notches, in fact – in the 2012 Diversity in Business rankings, published by the Baltimore Business Journal (BBJ) [Nov 2012]. In just one year, the Murthy Law Firm shot from 17th to 13th among the 50 largest minority-owned businesses in the greater Baltimore area. Each company is ranked based on number of employees and total revenues in 2011. When re-ranked based on the number of local employees, the Murthy Law Firm moves to 9th place.
The Murthy Law Firm is in impressive company, taking its place alongside other leading minority-owned enterprises, in fields ranging from IT and telecommunications to architecture and construction, travel and tourism, and consulting. We are especially proud of the fact that, once again, the Murthy Law Firm is the only legal services provider on the list.
This year’s rankings were announced at the BBJ’s Diversity in Business luncheon on November 29, and printed in a special supplement to the Baltimore Business Journal. The luncheon’s keynote speaker was Eddie Brown, CEO of Brown Capital Management, and a prominent African-American entrepreneur, who discussed some of the principles and strategies that have made him one of the area’s most successful investment managers.
The larger lesson was this: smart businesspeople know the value of diversity, and cultivate it down to the roots of their organizations. Diversity matters, not just because minority-owned businesses contribute so much to our economic vitality, but because a more diverse workplace helps our society to harness the talent and potential of people from a variety of backgrounds, all bringing unique ideas and perspectives to the table. As a law firm deeply committed to diversity, we know this is a win-win for everyone: it’s good for our society, good for our clients, and good for our bottom line, which is good for the economy!
