For the second year in a row, Selendy & Gay’s pathbreaking commitment to diversity has been recognized by Chambers and Partners.
Shortlisted for 2020’s Inclusive Firm of the Year and Outstanding Firm for Furthering Diversity and Inclusion, the firm was praised for increasing the opportunities for women, LGBTQ and attorneys of color. In addition to its 50% female equity partnership, Selendy & Gay also boasts diversity in LGBTQ lawyers (21% of attorneys), as well as in associates who identify as persons of color (over 30%).
“Understanding that law firms are notoriously slow to change, the firm formed with the intention of shifting the law firm paradigm, by not only retaining top-flight women and men, but also training the next generation in a way that would also disrupt the long-standing obstacles that have suppressed the advancement, promotion and mentoring of women and diverse attorneys,” said David Flugman, leader of Selendy & Gay’s diversity efforts.
Winners of the Diversity and Inclusion Awards will be announced on September 24, 2020.
