Manning Kass Earns Top 10 Finish For Diversity Amongst Equity PartnersAugust 4, 2023
Manning Kass continues to make headlines for our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
Industry news leader Law 360 recently released the first list in their annual Diversity Snapshot series. Manning Kass finished sixth in its firm size for its percentage of Equity Partners who are minorities. This marks the third consecutive year that Manning Kass has placed in the top ten on this prestigious list. The series of annual articles look at law firms and break down their DEI numbers in a variety of categories.
"Since we opened our doors 29 years ago, we have always had the policy to hire the best people, no matter the attorney's race, religion, or gender," said Firm Managing Partner Steven D. Manning. "This policy has directly resulted in our greatest successes and allowed us to thrive through recessions, a pandemic, and into the future. I'm proud to work with so many talented attorneys, who have helped make the firm what it is today.”
This recognition is another addition in a long list of awards and recognition by the firm and its individual employees. In addition to placing in the top ten for this category for the third consecutive year, Manning Kass finished sixth in its class in Law360’s rankings amongst non-equity attorneys in 2022. The firm has also been recognized by other publications and organizations, including the Los Angeles Times and Lawyers of Color. Our attorneys and staff are members of boards and panels that oversee diversity efforts inside and out of the legal field, are regular speakers and guests at various DEI events, and are leaders in their communities.
