Since 2008, Taft has completed five successful mergers and has more than doubled its size through mergers and strong lateral hiring.  Through a disciplined growth strategy, Taft has added new geographies and areas of experience to better serve its clients. This growth has strengthened Taft’s culture and core values:  Midwestern work ethic, a client-first mindset, collegiality, inclusiveness, and professional excellence.

Taft's growth is also driven by adopting modern policies to attract and retain top talent to serve our clients' needs. Recent examples include:
•  Instituting a one-class partnership to ensure more leadership roles and opportunities for younger and diverse attorneys.
•  Offering paid benefits to support Taft attorneys, such as 16 weeks of parental leave (regardless of gender), MilkStork, and emergency childcare and parental care.
•  Improving the diversity and gender composition of key committees.  Taft's compensation committee, executive committee and practice group leaders are comprised of approximately 50% women partners, along with  a significant number of diverse partners.

As an additional service to its clients, Taft attorneys often partner with members of its affiliated businesses to provide comprehensive client service. Taft’s wholly-owned, non-legal affiliated businesses include:
•  Focused Capitol Solutions LLC (governmental relations and public policy).
•  Ginovus LLC (economic development incentive packages, municipal economic development planning, and related economic development activities).
•  Ingardus LLC (all areas of insurance, including transactional, regulatory, compliance, and captive insurance companies).
