Lerner David Achieves Mansfield Rule Certification for Midsize Firms



We are proud to announce our Mansfield Certification for having demonstrated our firm’s longstanding commitment to meaningfully contribute to a diverse and inclusive legal profession.  The Mansfield Certification, facilitated by Diversity Lab, recognizes law firms who measure and work towards expanding leadership opportunities for women lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, lawyers with disabilities, and underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers.  
"All of the certified firms stepped up as trailblazers to create more diverse and inclusive leaderships in the midsize firm sector,” said Alyssa Jarvis, Senior Manager of Mansfield at Diversity Lab. “Despite launching this change-management effort during a global pandemic among other marketplace disruptions, these firms were not deterred from tackling challenging talent systems changes to increase diversity in their firms and the profession. This is a truly committed group of firms and leaders who see the value in measuring what matters."
“This is consistent with the Firm's Mission statement, which is VALUING our clients and colleagues by communicating openly and respectfully to generate ideas from DIVERSE points of view, all for the purpose of efficiently and effectively building IP value,” said the Managing Partner, Keith Gilman.  
Lerner David is pleased to have reached this significant milestone and we will continue to build teams that reflect the diversity of our clients and communities while providing innovative counsel and exceptional service.
