I am a partner in Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw, which is one of the firms mentioned in your story, “Male lawyers may not miss Wal-Mart gig” [ July 7]. We strongly support Wal-Mart’s diversity initiative. In fact, the majority of the partners leading our litigation teams for Wal-Mart are women or minorities; the majority of the partners working on these teams are women or minorities. In addition, we have substantial numbers of women and minority associates working on these teams.We are proud of this record, and we are continuing to work to improve it. We have had the privilege of representing Wal-Mart in litigation matters for several years.We disagree with the published comments from anonymous sources and from plaintiff’s counsel who oppose us in our cases. Instead, we believe that Wal-Mart — like many other leading companies — should be commended for their specific and tangible support of diversity in the legal profession Robert P.
