Cooley Again Named Among Top Firms for Diverse Partnership Representation

Diversity report emphasizes firm’s commitment to valuing and celebrating differences
July 27, 2023

Palo Alto – July 28, 2023 – In Law360’s 2023 Diversity Snapshot report, Cooley was ranked #3 among law firms with more than 600 lawyers, based on the diverse representation of its partnership. Cooley also ranked in the top 10 of all firms with more than 250 lawyers and in the top 25 of all firms surveyed.

Law360’s Diversity Snapshot evaluated more than 280 firms, ranking them based on their pipeline score, which accounts for how lawyer diversity often shrinks at each successive level of the hierarchy, despite the pool of available talent. The score also measures a firm’s percentage points above or below a set of benchmarks created using data from the American Bar Association and firms’ own headcounts.

Cooley is dedicated to maintaining a workplace that values and celebrates differences. This commitment includes active and creative partnerships with clients and in local and national law organizations that support people from underrepresented backgrounds, as well as diversity pipeline projects, law school diversity programs and community outreach.

The firm has been widely recognized for its diversity, equity and inclusion efforts by top industry organizations and publications, including earning a six-time perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index, achieving certification as a Gold Standard firm by the Women in Law Empowerment Forum for the 12th consecutive year, and being named on Seramount’s (formerly Working Mother) Best Law Firms for Women list – now known as the Best Law Firms for Women & Diversity list – 12 times. Cooley also is a five-time Mansfield Rule Certified Plus law firm in the US and a successful pilot participant for the Mansfield Rule UK.
