For the 15th consecutive year, global law firm White & Case LLP has ranked among the top ten firms in The American Lawyer magazine's Diversity Scorecard assessing diversity and inclusion at US law firms.
Among its peers in the top ten positions of the Am Law 100, an annual ranking by gross revenue, White & Case achieved the highest Diversity Score. The Firm is ranked second among all firms scored; the first is a boutique immigration law firm.
"Yet again, White & Case is first for diversity among Am Law 10 law firms," said Binoy Dharia (New York), partner and chair of the White & Case Global Diversity Committee. "Our Firm is exceptional in its commitment to inclusion and advancement for women, racial minorities and LGBT+ people."
To calculate diversity scores, The American Lawyer ranks firms by a series of metrics assessing their racial and ethnic diversity across three categories: Firm Leadership, Equity Partners and Other Attorneys. The final score is determined by combining the three scores.
Diversity and inclusion are core values at White & Case. In February, White & Case earned its 14th perfect score for commitment to LGBTQ workplace equality from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation.
