Washington, D.C. (July 27, 2022) – Sterne, Kessler, Goldstein & Fox is pleased to announce the firm’s inclusion in Law360’s 2022 Diversity Snapshot survey. Out of the 96 participating firms in the “101 to 250 attorneys” category, Sterne Kessler ranks among the top five firms for overall diversity and among the top three firms for equity partnership diversity. The firm demonstrated increases in minority representation both overall and within the equity partnership from the 2021 survey.
Again this year, Law360 determined its 2022 Diversity Snapshot results by creating a pipeline score for each firm, which incorporates data from Law360’s historical surveys and the American Bar Association. The score is based on each firm’s minority representation at every seniority level and measures the percentage points above or below Law360’s set of benchmarks. Sterne Kessler exceeded the benchmarks for the second consecutive year with a pipeline score of +3.6, positioning it among the 16.5% of all 291 participating firms to do so.
Director and Diversity & Inclusion Committee Chair Gaby L. Longsworth, Ph.D. commented: “We at Sterne Kessler are proud to be included among the leading firms of our size for diverse attorney representation. We strive to continue increasing our diversity in all of our attorney and staff levels by fostering a welcoming, equitable, and inclusive culture, providing professional development and mentoring, and offering insightful programming. We have a keen focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion in all that we do within the firm and for our clients.”
