Mayer Brown announced that it has been named one of the top 10 firms for advancing gender diversity and inclusion in the firm’s leadership and Intellectual Property practice by ChIPs, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing and connecting women in technology, law and policy.

This year’s list included the firms with the highest ChIPs index scores on the “Inclusion Blueprint” survey, a joint initiative with Diversity Lab that measures gender diversity and inclusion practices in law firm leadership and in the IP practice group.

The survey focused on assessing the overall representation of diversity in leadership. In addition, firms were asked about their efforts in monitoring and measuring lawyers’ work activities and experiences, such as work allocation, leave, sponsorship, client pitches, and other critical development and advancement opportunities at the practice group level.

Mayer Brown’s global Intellectual Property practice is co-led by two women partners: Lisa Ferri in New York and Gabriela Kennedy in Hong Kong. The firm’s diverse and globally integrated team of IP practitioners consists of more than 100 lawyers and IP professionals across four continents.
