Washington, D.C., April 10 — Patton Boggs LLP has been named a Top 100 Law Firm for Diversity for the fourth consecutive year by MultiCultural Law magazine. The firm has also been ranked as a top law firm for women and for Native-Americans.
In addition, partner DeMaurice Smith is highlighted in the magazine for his efforts to “elevate diversity” both as an attorney at Patton Boggs and as a community advocate in Washington, D.C.
Patton Boggs formed its Diversity Committee in 2006 as a way to raise awareness of its internal and external diversity initiatives and successes. Those diversity efforts and programs have also been recognized for many years by The Vault, Working Mother magazine, as well as other organizations and publications.
“Our efforts to raise awareness about our diversity programs are proving to be successful, both in terms of recruitment and retention of attorneys and staff, and through the external recognition we have earned for our continued progress. Patton Boggs understands the importance of having an inclusive mindset and diverse workforce, and in 2008, the firm will continue its commitment to diversity by creating new positions and programs, while implementing more effective tools for measuring and rewarding diversity initiatives,” says Managing Partner Stuart Pape.
