WSHB is the 4th Most Diverse Law Firm in U.S.

WSHB ties for #1 for biggest improvement in American Lawyer’s Diversity Survey

Wood Smith Henning & Berman LLP was ranked one of the top four law firms in the nation by American Lawyer in its annual Diversity Scorecard Survey. WSHB rose from 7th place last year to 4th place this year in the annual AmLaw Diversity Survey, considered the “gold standard” for rankings, which compares firms according to a score based on their combined percentage of minority lawyers and minority partners in U.S. offices.

“Historically, law has not been among the most diverse of professions,” said Partner Domingo Tan, Chair of WSHB’s Recruiting Committee. “This trend has recently begun to change and I am proud that our firm is one of the national leaders in recognizing and celebrating diversity as a core value.”

WSHB tied for #1 for biggest improvement among all law firms in the United States in the annual survey, with a gain of 6.6 points.

“People speak about strength in numbers, but it’s not just about numbers,” said WSHB Partner Jade Tran. Jade was recruited to join WSHB during law school. “At WSHB, we are a litigation powerhouse built upon the experiences drawn from our diverse attorney backgrounds. It’s this diversity that also makes our attorneys relatable to our clients who themselves stem from diverse backgrounds.”

“I feel incredibly fortunate to work in an environment that cares about my success and personal development as both a leader and a lawyer,” said Wendy Lau, Senior Counsel in WSHB’s Rancho Cucamonga office. “What I appreciate most are the partners and colleagues who support my ambitions and goals, and are there to provide constructive criticism and guidance on my career path. You hear all too often about the ultra-competitive nature of other firms, and we don’t have that here. Sure, we’re competitive, but we also know that when one of us wins, we all win.”
