Gender and Ethnic Diversity Today: A Current Look at Diversity in the Top 200

When it comes to ethnic diversity, the legal industry has work to do. People of color represent only 16% of all attorneys in the top 200. Women of color represent only 8% of the population overall and only four percent of partners. The use of data and tools like The Leopard List and Firmscape can help improve retention and create strategies to close the diversity gaps. Find out how we do it.

Law Firm Gender and Ethnic Diversity 2020
The business reasons to increase diversity are many. There is substantial research to show that diversity brings many advantages to an organization: increased profitability and creativity, stronger governance, and better problem-solving abilities. Employees with diverse backgrounds bring to bear their own perspectives, ideas, and experiences, helping to create organizations that are resilient and effective, and which outperform organizations that do not invest in diversity.

At Leopard Solutions, we are working to remove a barrier to finding diverse attorneys that meet all the other requirements. Need an IP attorney who has represented GlaxoSmithKline? Would you like to see the attorneys with a high probability of being diverse with the same credentials? We can do that.

Our goal is to provide accurate data that can help law firms change these numbers moving forward.
