July 27, 2022

Law360’s Pulse survey lists Paul Hastings LLP as one of the top elite law firms far “outpacing their peers” in diversity of equity partners, with almost 20% of equity partners identifying as attorneys of color.

 This recognition follows other recent accolades for the firm’s culture of diversity and inclusion, including top rankings in The American Lawyer’s 2022 Diversity Scorecard, and its 2022 “A-List,” which ranks firms across five key metrics, including diversity.

“Our many recent recognitions reflect Paul Hastings’ ongoing commitment to building a diverse and highly collaborative culture that delivers innovative solutions for clients,” said Frank Lopez, the firm’s managing partner, chair-elect, and diversity chair.

Vault also recently gave Paul Hastings high marks in diversity and other categories, including Top-10 rankings in the areas of Best Law Firm to Work For; Overall Diversity; Diversity for LGBTQ+ Individuals; Diversity for Individuals with Disabilities; Satisfaction; and Quality of Work.

Paul Hastings is Mansfield Certified Plus, after completing the Mansfield Rule 4.0 certification program, which encourages law firms to expand the representation of diverse lawyers in leadership roles by broadening the candidate pool for opportunities in governance roles, equity partner promotions, and senior lateral positions. The firm has also been named a “Best Places to Work” for LGBTQ Equality, having earned a perfect score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index for 14 consecutive years.
