Tydings & Rosenberg LLP values highly the perspectives and varied experiences that are found only in a diverse workplace. Diversity makes for a broader, richer environment that produces more creative thinking and solutions. We believe that promoting diversity is essential to the success of our firm. It is also the right thing to do.
Tydings was founded on diversity. In 1930, before it became popular to talk about "diversity," Morris Rosenberg joined Senator Millard E. Tydings in the practice of law—making the firm one of the first in Maryland to break the barrier of religious beliefs. Tydings continues this tradition of welcoming and encouraging the success of all persons, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, culture, nationality, age, lifestyle, or physical abilities.
These principles of diversity are integral and essential to our overall success. They are incorporated into all aspects of our professional practice, including:
Tydings actively recruits a diverse population to our firm. We work hard to increase our retention rate and to promote women and minority attorneys to leadership roles within the firm, the profession, and the community. We have an established mentoring program to assist new attorneys in developing their potential and navigating their careers with an emphasis on their success—both professionally and in the community.

Tydings participates in organizations and activities that assist diverse populations in the community. We are involved in the Maryland Volunteer Lawyer Service, United Way of Central Maryland, Lawyers Campaign Against Hunger and The Equal Justice Council. We were the lead sponsor of an event that benefited the Women Leadership & Equality fellowship program of the University of Maryland School of Law, a unique program that focuses on the social, legal, and structural barriers to women assuming leadership positions in the law and elsewhere.
Tydings' clients are diverse. We represent clients from Europe, Asia, Latin and South America. Locally, our clients include organizations with women and minority CEOs and women and minority-owned businesses. A recent example is our partnership with the Legal Aid Bureau of Maryland to provide pro bono representation to the displaced residents of a large apartment complex in a fair-housing claim.
Tydings' attorneys are active members and hold leadership positions in various professional associations, including the National Bar Association and Women’s Bar Association.
Diversity is the cornerstone of our past and the foundation of our future.
