Nine Manning Kass Attorneys Listed In Lawyers of Color’s Law Firm Leader’s Issue

March 14, 2023

Nine Manning Kass attorneys across the nation were recently listed in Lawyers of Color’s Law Firm Leaders issue. Partner Rodrigo J. Bozoghlian, Partner Al M. De La Cruz, New York Managing Partner Jeanette L. Dixon, Partner Sean Dowsing, Partner Richard G. Garcia, Partner Sharon Jeffrey, Partner and New York Co-Founder Marguerite L. Jonak, Senior Partner Erwin A. Nepomuceno, and Founding Partner Eugene P. Ramirez were listed in the inaugural edition. The free issue aims to be a comprehensive collection of “minorities who are either Managing Partners, Executive Committee Members, or Practice Group Heads.”

The nine included attorneys reflect the firm’s commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and promoting and hiring of talented individuals and leaders across the firm. Six of the seven Manning Kass offices are represented as well as an array of practices. It also reflects an array of experience levels and backgrounds. 

“I believe our inaugural Law Firm Leaders issue is one of the most consequential publications Lawyers of Color has released this decade,” said President and Executive Directory of Lawyers of Color Yolanda Young. “Even as research and public opinion have determined that diversity is not only good, but also good for business, companies still sometimes express and difficulty in finding minority candidates and vendors. The Law Firm Leaders issue is a huge step in that direction as it provides in-house with a ready directory of attorneys of African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American descent who are legal experts, as well as decision-makers within their law firms.”

We look forward to working with Lawyers of Color now and in the future to make sure minority leaders are easy to discover and connect with. Congratulations to these nine attorneys for being included! You can read the full issue here
