From our founding in 1972, Fenwick has been committed to promoting diversity and inclusion both within our firm and throughout the legal profession.
For almost four decades, the firm has actively promoted an open and inclusive work environment and committed significant resources towards improving our diversity efforts at every level.
We actively recruit diverse attorneys – race, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, geographic/cultural background – through numerous channels, including on-campus initiatives, minority bar associations and job fairs. We believe that a diverse workforce helps us serve our clients better and fosters an environment of cooperation, respect, creativity and mutual understanding in which everyone thrives.
Fenwick has implemented a number of initiatives to support and encourage our diversity and inclusion efforts, including:
In recent years, Fenwick has been ranked #1 by MultiCultural Law Magazine in the publication's "Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity" survey and ranked among the top 10 U.S. law firms for diversity by Corporate Counsel in the Diversity Scorecard survey. For the fifth straight year the firm has also received 100% score (A+ rating) on The Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index (2009-2013) for our pro-LGBT policies and working environment.
