Our History

Established in 1913 and headquartered in Pittsburgh, Meyer Darragh also maintains a second regional office in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, and serves a broad spectrum of corporate, business, professional and individual clients on a local, state, regional, and national basis.

Meyer Darragh is committed to diversity, including gender, racial and handicap diversity.

The firm has participated in the Minority Corporate Counsel Association, and our firm's commitment to diversity was honored in the first edition of the African American Leadership Directory.

The firm's recent efforts in this venture include Meyer Darragh's participation in the Allegheny County Bar Association's Minority Summer Clerkship Program. The firm has welcomed law students from the University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University law schools as part of the initiative where students from the law schools were placed in clerkships with some of the city's law firms, corporate law departments, and government agencies. The firm has been very pleased with the diversity initiative and has participated in the program each summer since its inception in 2005.

As part of its internal diversity efforts, upon hiring with the firm, each employee is provided daylong training on firm policy, including issues relating to acceptance of a diverse workplace and acceptance of individuals of diverse backgrounds, ethnic identification, and sexual orientation.

Additionally, each employee is required to watch a video on prohibited conduct, harassment and discrimination, is provided a personnel manual upon hiring, and is trained on various policies including (1) our policy against harassment and discrimination, (2) statement of prohibited conduct, (3) procedures for making and investigating complaints of harassment and discrimination, (4) policy prohibiting workplace violence based upon, among other things, race, gender, ethnic background or sexual orientation, (5) E-Mail policy prohibiting, among other things, circulation or storage of material which contains sexual material or innuendo, racial slurs, gender offensive conduct, or any comment that offensively addresses someone's age, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, national origin, or disability.

Issues of diversity acceptance, recruitment, hiring, retention, and support are raised, discussed and voted on by the partnership. Many policies have been accepted and implemented to participate in, support, and fund, among others, the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA) Diversity Initiative, ACBA Minority Summer Intern Program, ACBA Minority Job Fair Program, ACBA Homer S. Brown Society, and Pennsylvania Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession. Additionally, guidance is provided to the professional staff on the importance of a diverse workplace, providing clients diverse views, and supporting diversity initiatives. Diversity issues are also regularly addressed by the firm's Executive Committee. The issues addressed include our present diversity needs and initiatives, methods to increase minority retention, topics for discussion on a firm level, appointment of diversity coordinators and diversity issues for analysis at the firm's annual retreat. Also, requests for funding, support, and membership in diversity initiatives are discussed and approved with the managing partner at the management level.
