Adams and Reese Ranks Among Top 200 Diversity Law Firms for Seventh Consecutive Year


 
PRLog - Jun. 24, 2014 - NEW ORLEANS -- For the seventh consecutive year, Adams and Reese ranked among the Top 200 Law Firms in diversity among its attorneys according to the 2014 “Diversity Scorecard,” an annual ranking compiled by the Minority Law Journal and American Lawyer Magazine.

Adams and Reese ranked No. 184 on the list.

The 2014 Diversity Scorecard tallies the number of African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic and multiracial/other attorneys in various law firm jobs. The rankings awarded to each firm is based on the number obtained when the scorecard adds the percentage of minority lawyers in the firm’s U.S. offices to the percentage of U.S.-based minority partners. The diversity survey was sent to some of the country’s largest and highest-grossing firms, those that qualify for inclusion in The Am Law 200, The NLJ 350, or both.

Within the practice of law, Adams and Reese is a pioneer in the development and expansion of diversity and has received several accolades for its diversity efforts.

Recently, Adams and Reese received the 2014 Louisiana State Bar Association Human Rights Award, given by the LSBA for the firm’s diversity efforts and for promoting diversity in the legal profession. Adams and Reese’s other diversity awards and recognitions have included the Law Firm Diversity Award from the National Bar Association (2013); Top 200 Law Firms in Diversity by the Minority Law Journal (2013); “Unity Award” by Sarasota’s Biz941 Magazine (2012); “Corporate Counsel Women of Color® Diversity Award of Excellence” (2011); Human Resources Management Association (HRMA) Commitment to Diversity Award (2011); Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity by MultiCultural Law (2010); Top 100 Law Firms for Women by Women 3.0 Magazine (2010); LSBA “Certificate of Commendation” (2009); "Encouraging Diversity" Minority Business Award from Birmingham Business Journal (2007-2009); and “Lighthouse Award” by International Paper (2006).
