Created by the Diversity Lab, the Midsize Mansfield Rule Certification is designed to increase diversity at law firms by broadening the pool of candidates considered for positions at all levels. It measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered at least 30% women lawyers, underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities for attorney positions, leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, and formal client pitch opportunities.

“Congratulations to everyone at the firm who helped make this certification possible,” said Benjamin Bailey, a founding partner of Bailey Glasser. “We recognize that solving the most consequential legal issues for our clients requires us to build a diverse legal team.
