Mayer Brown has been named one of the top law firms in The American Lawyer’s 2023 Diversity Scorecard. The firm ranked #3 among its peer firms with 950+ lawyers in the US and #17 overall. The annual Diversity Scorecard tracks racial and ethnic diversity across firm leadership, equity partners and other lawyers at the Am Law 200 and National Law Journal 250 firms.
Mayer Brown’s significant increase in its Diversity Scorecard ranking is the result of sustained engagement of its firm leaders and a comprehensive set of diversity equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives designed to build on the firm’s long-standing commitment to the recruitment, retention and promotion of diverse lawyers, including its Mansfield Rule Certification – 5.0 in the US.
“We believe that diversity, equity and inclusion drive excellence, opportunity and meaningful change – in our offices, the legal profession and the wider community,” said Jeremiah DeBerry, Mayer Brown partner and Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. “We are proud of our progress but recognize much work still needs to be done.”
