LPL Financial Becomes BBA Sponsor

The legal department of LPL Financial joined as a Boston Bar Association sponsor, supporting the BBA's mission to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, and serve the community at large.

Located in the heart of Boston’s Financial District, LPL Financial provides a platform of proprietary technology, comprehensive clearing and compliance services, practice management programs and training, and independent research to more than 14,000 financial advisors and approximately 700 financial institutions, enabling them to help their clients turn life's aspirations into financial realities.

The firm also supports more than 4,000 other financial advisors licensed and affiliated with insurance companies with customized clearing solutions, advisory platforms, and technology.

LPL has been a proud supporter of BBA for many years. Executive Vice President, Government Relations, Peggy Ho, currently sits on the BBA Council.

Peggy said, “Diversity and inclusion is a core value at LPL Financial. The firm was an early supporter of the American Bar Association’s Resolution 113, an initiative designed to increase diversity in the legal profession. We believe by working together we can help promote this effort.” Resolution 113 urges all legal services providers to expand and create opportunities at all levels of responsibility for diverse attorneys, and urges clients to direct a greater percentage of the legal services they purchase to diverse attorneys.

Through LPL Financial’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, the firm achieved a top score of 100% in The Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) Corporate Equality Index (CEI), recognizing the company as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality.”

The BBA is proud to have this type of support and partnership with company like LPL Financial.

 

The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
