Under our deed of establishment, the firm does not differentiate between people according to their age, gender, ethnicity, religion, social class or sexuality. In Indonesia, this principle is important because there are hundreds of different ethnic groups, who follow several different religions. The firm’s partners, lawyers, and staff come from various different ethnic groups and follow different religions. They were born into different social classes and graduated from various universities.
As a firm that believes in the power of inclusivity, Makarim & Taira S. has been empowering many women lawyers to grow and thrive in a field that has been historically men-dominated.
