McDermott Partner Recounts His Firsts as a Sikh Lawyer and the Wave of Diversity in the Profession



Amandeep Sidhu wrote this bylined article reviewing his career growth. When Mr. Sidhu became a McDermott partner in 2013 he was the first turbaned Sikh ever to achieve that recognition at an AmLaw 100 firm, and he wrote that “getting to this level has not been easy and did not happen by chance. It’s taken a personal commitment and willingness to work twice as hard as my nondiverse peers, mentors to guide me and sponsors who put their credibility on the line to support my success.”
