Law360 Features Terrence Franklin in Minority Powerbrokers Q & A
Partner Terrence Franklin is featured in Law360’s Minority Powerbrokers Q&A focusing on diverse senior level attorneys and the tremendous impact they are having on the legal industry. With a quarter century of experience, Mr. Franklin notes that he is one of the very few African Americans practicing in the trusts and estates litigation field and advises how minorities can move up the ranks in their firms.
- As a fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), and the only African-American fellow, Mr. Franklin is working to develop programs to widen the pipeline for prospective fellows, acting as an ambassador for the trusts and estates practice area, especially to diverse attorneys, and assisting in improving opportunities for diversity and inclusion.
To create more diversity among partner ranks in law firms, he advises to “be broad-minded in considering how the varied experiences of minority candidates can help to contribute to the firm’s success,” as well as introduce associates to clients so they can build relationships that can generate business opportunities.
