Question Details

(Solved) With Elaine's recent hire, GOBN now has 41 attorneys: 39 Caucasian men, 1 African-American man, and one Caucasian woman.


 With Elaine's recent hire, GOBN now has 41 attorneys: 39 Caucasian men, 1 African-American man, and one Caucasian woman. Despite having the best seats for Buckeye games, GOBN is losing clients to Getwitha Thymes, its top competitor. Barry reviews the bios on the website for Getwitha Thymes and discovers (based on the head shots) that Getwitha Thymes has a diverse group of attorneys. Barry decides that GOBN needs to mirror the racial and gender composition of Getwitha Thymes. In the next 12 months, Barry hires 20 attorneys fresh out of law school: 12 African-American men, including his son, Barry Bonds, Jr., 6 African-American women, Yumiko Fukushimo, an Asian woman and the wife of Ichiro Suzuki, and a Hispanic woman. 

GOBN has a 10 year "partnership track", meaning that attorneys who have been practicing law for 10 or more years are eligible to be considered for partner. Partners have greater job security and make significantly more than associates. GOBN accepts a maximum of two attorneys into the partnership each year. David Dukes has been with GOBN since 2002. Based on his years of practice, Mr. Dukes is the only associate eligible for partner in 2012. Mr. Dukes has large and loyal clients, which is no surprise, as Mr. Dukes recently was rated by Super Lawyers magazine as the top trial attorney in Ohio. By all accounts, Mr. Dukes is worthy of inclusion into the partnership. Because Getwitha Thymes has a diverse group of partners, however, Barry decides to shorten the partnership track for diverse attorneys. Because Barry Bonds, Jr. and Yukimo Fukushimo led GOBN to its first attorney-league softball title in 2012 and were a "hit" with the clients, Barry proposed them for partnership. Convinced that diverse partners would enable GOBN to retain its clients, GOBN elected Barry Bonds, Jr. and Yukimo Fukushimo to the partnership in 2012.
