Crowe & Dunlevy has announced attorneys André B. Caldwell and Susan E. Huntsman as chair and co-chair respectively for the firm’s Diversity Committee. The committee was formed in 2000 to promote the strength that women, minority and LGBTQ lawyers add to the fabric of the firm and to the legal environment overall.
“Crowe & Dunlevy is committed to providing diversity in our legal services as that is the way to ensure that the best knowledge and ideas are available to our clients,” said Timila S. Rother, president and CEO of Crowe & Dunlevy. “André and Susan are strong and passionate advocates for this cause and we’re proud to have them leading our efforts.”
Caldwell serves in the Criminal Defense, Compliance & Investigations and Litigation & Trial Practice Groups in the firm’s Oklahoma City office. In addition to serving private and public companies and individuals, he previously worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Huntsman serves in the Appellate, Energy, Environment & Natural Resources and Indian Law & Gaming Practice Groups in the firm’s Tulsa office. She represents clients before state, federal and tribal trial courts, in addition to appellate tribunals, often focusing on natural resources issues and matters affecting those in Indian country.
Crowe & Dunlevy’s Diversity Committee was named recipient of the Oklahoma Bar Association’s 2016 Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher Diversity Award in recognition of their efforts in promoting diversity in Oklahoma. Committee members focus on how to best foster the recruiting, retention and professional development of attorneys, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.
