The American Lawyer ranked Fenwick as one of the most diverse law firms on its 2020 Diversity Scorecard, the fifth consecutive year that the firm has been recognized in the top 10.
Fenwick ranked sixth overall for diversity in its partner and attorney ranks. In addition, the firm ranked second for its high percentage of Asian-American lawyers.
The Diversity Scorecard ranks firms by the average number of full-time-equivalent minority lawyers—which include Asian-American, Black, Latino or Hispanic, Native American and self-described multiracial lawyers—at Am Law 200 and National Law Journal 250 law firms.
For over four decades, Fenwick has been committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion both within the firm and throughout the legal profession. The firm actively promotes an open and inclusive work environment and commits significant resources to improving its diversity efforts at every level.
Fenwick’s strong commitment to diversity and an open workplace culture has been consistently recognized. The firm recently received a perfect score on The Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index for its policies and practices in support of the LGBTQ+ community for the 12th consecutive year. Fenwick was also named one of the 60 best law firms for women by Working Mother and was a shortlist finalist for Chambers & Partners’ “Outstanding Firm for Furthering Diversity and Inclusion” honor as part of its Diversity & Inclusion Awards: North America 2020.
