History

LACM's Two Decade Journey



A culture of learning, teamwork, innovation, and dedication to doing what's right for clients.

LACM prides itself on its people, building and developing a team of driven, energetic, and passionate individuals. The Firm seeks to promote a diverse corporate culture in which different backgrounds and perspectives are not only represented but celebrated. Employees are empowered to leverage their individual talents and share their diverse viewpoints. 

The Firm’s diversity efforts are supported by an employee-led Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Working Group (DEIWG), who seek to foster a more inclusive working environment, ensure all voices are heard at the Firm, and attract, develop, and retain the best talent. This commitment extends to ensuring that dimensions of diversity are embedded in various aspects of work life, including hiring, operations, community outreach initiatives, philanthropic causes, and investments.

LACM is also actively committed to raising firmwide social consciousness. Its employee-led Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) group seeks to aid in all aspects of social responsibility, and strives to create and sustain a company culture that values awareness, humility, and accountability to ensure an ethical fulfillment of its civic duty. This commitment extends to proactively encouraging and empowering dimensions of diversity so they are embedded into LACM's way of working from hiring to operations, community outreach initiatives, philanthropic causes, and investments.
