Munger, Tolles & Olson ranked No. 8 on The American Lawyer’s 2015 Diversity Scorecard*, published in the magazine’s June 2016 issue.
Minority attorneys comprised 20.9 percent of all Munger Tolles lawyers in 2015 and 18.8 percent of the firm’s single-tier equity partnership. On both counts, Munger Tolles beat the national averages of 15.02 percent and 8.22 percent, respectively.
“Munger Tolles has a long tradition of supporting diversity, both within our firm and across the legal industry,” said Munger Tolles Diversity Committee Co-Chair Mark B. Helm. “We recognize that a broad range of experiences and points of view allows us to offer our clients the best level of service and strengthens our overall firm.”
Munger Tolles has been a strong advocate of attorney diversity since it was founded in 1962 by a group of lawyers that included a woman. The firm operates several programs designed to strengthen the pipeline of diverse individuals entering the legal profession, including the MTO Fellows Program. In addition, we remain focused on recruiting, retaining and promoting diverse attorneys, recently participating in the 2016 Women in Law Hackathon to generate ideas for closing the gender gap at law firms.
