Committed to helping in our local and legal communities.
We understand that we are not just defined by our external work product and generosity, but also by the internal practices and philosophy we promote and are committed to creating a healthy and positive work environment. We believe the best work is done when people are happy, balanced, and inspired and are dedicated to building and preserving a culture based on our core values of Passion, Precision, and Partnership.
Diversity and Inclusion
We must be an inclusive organization where diversity and creativity meet - one that unites people with different backgrounds, perspectives, skills and experiences. This is based on the basic belief that it takes the synthesis of a variety of points of view to create a stronger, more accountable organization. It makes our services more authentic, our people better equipped to serve a variety of clients and communities, and it makes IMS an even more productive, dynamic, and rewarding place to work.
What we do:
- Creation of a dedicated, employee-led Diversity & Inclusion team
- Regular company-wide trainings
- Strategic partnerships with external expert consultants
- Conduct internal surveys to anchor our efforts and measure results
- Provide employees with resources and learning opportunities
IMS Consulting & Expert Services is proud to be a sustainable business. Our sustainability efforts include: composting and recycling program, using reusable supplies and green products, and water conservation, among other things.
It is our philosophy that we are not only a part of the legal community, but also a member of our local communities. We strive to make a positive impact in our community and each year we donate our services, time, and money to a variety of local projects motivated by our collective values and chosen by Focal Point employees. We set aside time for members of our team to do pro-bono work and to volunteer within the community. We have grown strong ties to a number of local organizations. We are proud of the work they do, and honored to be able to help.

We understand the importance of creating an inclusive environment and providing resources that foster a sense of belonging so that all of our employees feel that they can bring their whole selves to work. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is based on our belief that many points of view come together to make a stronger and more creative organization.
