WSHB Achieves RING Certification in its Continued Commitment to DEI

June 15, 2021

WSHB is known internationally in the legal field and beyond for its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Recently, the firm added another recognition to its long list of accolades when it obtained the RING Certification. The RING (Recognizing Inclusion for the Next Generation) Certification is awarded to organizations who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. It is the new gold standard to distinguish organizations who actively invest in DEI as a core value and reflect those values in their daily business practices.

“WSHB is honored to receive the RING Certification. “Diversity, equity and inclusion is a core value for our firm which we have embraced from the day we opened our doors,” said Janice Michaels, managing partner of the firm’s Las Vegas office. “We seek to recruit, mentor, develop and support attorneys and staff from diverse backgrounds. When we listen to and choose to understand new perspectives it reveals a pathway to celebrate our differences. This pathway leads to a stronger, wiser and more unified workplace. WSHB is hopeful that other law firms will see the benefits of supporting diverse groups within their ranks and strive to do the same.”

National recognition is not new for WSHB. The firm received the prestigious Law Firm Diversity Award from the DRI in 2014, and Law360 named WSHB as one of the “Best Law Firms for Minority Attorneys.” In addition, WSHB has been ranked as one of the top ten law firms in the nation by Law360’s “The 100 Best Law Forms for Female Attorneys” for several years running as well as one of the top three law firms in the nation for inclusiveness of women in the National Law Journal’s Women Scorecard.

“National rankings underscore our success in diversity, Am Law has ranked our firm as one of the top ten most diverse law firms in the nation, added founding partner, Stephen Henning. “This past year, we again were top ten overall for the diversity of our attorneys, top ten for diversity within the partnership, and top ten for Hispanic attorneys. What makes us really proud is the fact the nation’s spotlight is shining brightly on the importance of diversity and inclusivity in law.”

WSHB is a full-service litigation firm with offices throughout the United States. The firm has tried over 1,000 cases to verdict and is internationally recognized for its exceptionally high rate of success. Since the firm’s inception in 1997 by trial lawyers David Wood, Kevin Smith, Stephen Henning and Daniel Berman, WSHB has been known as the “go to” firm for complex civil litigation in professional liability, employment, commercial, medical malpractice and healthcare, construction, environmental, toxic tort and intellectual property litigation as well as cybersecurity in more recent years.
