Friedman Kaplan Named to Bloomberg Law’s 2022 DEI Framework
Bloomberg Law has named Friedman Kaplan to its second annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Framework as one of 43 U.S.-based law firms recognized for its level of disclosure of diversity-related metrics and distinguished performance against six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity & inclusion in the community. The firm was also recognized last year in Bloomberg Law’s inaugural DEI Framework, which was developed in collaboration with Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index team, as well as diversity leads at corporations and U.S.-based law firms.
“The desire to incorporate DEI into the selection process for outside legal services presents a new challenge for the industry, but Friedman Kaplan Seiler & Adelman LLP has distinguished itself as a law firm worthy of consideration,” said Joe Breda, President, Bloomberg Law. “Through a demonstrated commitment to DEI, Friedman Kaplan is helping to move the legal industry forward and we recognize their performance by naming them as a member of our 2022 DEI Framework.”
“We are thrilled to again be recognized for the firm’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion as a member of this year’s framework, and more importantly, for the opportunity for measurement against industry benchmarks as we remain focused on continuously improving our own efforts in this area both within our firm and in the broader legal community,” commented Friedman Kaplan Management Committee member Mala Ahuja Harker.
