an essential component to Velkei Law's
unique formula for success.
Diversity in the workplace is important to Mr. Velkei, not simply because he comes from a diverse background but because he believes it essential to his unique brand of winning. Problem solving, at its core, requires looking at a problem from all angles, and having a diverse team ensures that a problem will be reviewed from a number of perspectives. This is essential where, as here, Velkei Law manages complex disputes that are not subject to easy answers or solutions.
Mr. Velkei frequently lectures on diversity issues and has been a regular presenter at the American Bar Association conferences, as well as made presentations before the Association of Corporate Counsel, the statewide conference of the California Association of Realtors, GOOD (“Guys Overcoming Obstacles to Diversity”) Guys, and others. For three years, Mr. Velkei acted as chair of the US Diversity and Inclusion Committee for the world’s largest law firm. He has also consulted with private companies on best practices for promoting diversity in the workplace and has lectured on regulatory issues and trial advocacy. Mr. Velkei is himself from a diverse background. He is LGBTQ. His mother is Latina, his father is an immigrant from Hungary, and his husband is African American.
Velkei Law is in the unique position of being a small firm that has the experience, talent, and creativity to litigate and win complex disputes with substantial impact at stake.
