Chicago Lawyer Magazine recently conducted its 2019 Diversity Survey of the 100 largest law firms in Illinois and reported that 10 of the 20 largest law firms in Illinois—including five of the top 10—have women at the helm of their Chicago offices. Britt Miller, the managing partner of Mayer Brown’s Chicago office and a co-leader of the firm’s global Antitrust & Competition practice, is one of them.

Ms. Miller was appointed managing partner of Mayer Brown’s Chicago office in 2018. She succeeded Rebecca Eisner, who previously headed up the Chicago office since 2015, and still holds a leadership role on the firm’s Global Management Committee.

When Chicago Lawyer Magazine asked Ms. Miller about the importance of diversity for its “View from the Top” article, she said, “Being able to foster and present to our clients a diverse team can only enrich the overall service to our clients. Having a homogeneous perspective, I don’t think gets you the best answer. We need to listen better than we did 10, 15, 20 years ago, and listen to women and diverse candidates.”
