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.
