Shearman & Sterling was recently recognized by Law360 as one of the Best Law Firms for Minority Attorneys as well as one of the Best Law Firms for Minority Equity Partners, based on U.S. attorney percentages. Among firms with 300-599 U.S. attorneys, Shearman & Sterling tied for 4th in the former category and ranked 7th in the latter category.
“Although law firms have long struggled to recruit and retain minority attorneys,” Law360 noted, “the firms on Law360’s list are making some headway and enjoying the benefits of a more diverse attorney workforce.”
“Shearman & Sterling is proud to be acknowledged as a leading law firm in developing a more inclusive and open workplace,” said Creighton Condon, Shearman & Sterling’s Senior Partner. “The diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives of our lawyers enrich the culture of the firm and enhance the quality of our legal services.”
