Social Responsibility

As a firm, Lathrop Gage is committed to being a diverse, inclusive employer and an outstanding corporate citizen. We implement initiatives to recruit, retain and develop diverse talent; engage in business practices that save energy and promote sustainability; encourage our attorneys to volunteer their time to civic, community and professional organizations; and donate legal services to those unable to afford a lawyer.

It’s a legacy of service that dates back to our firm’s founders: Gardiner Lathrop was among Kansas City’s first school board members and bar presidents, and John Gage was the “Reform Mayor” who drove out the notorious Pendergast Machine.
