Butler Snow has been named a Top Performer by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), recognizing those law firms and corporations showing a strong commitment to building more diverse organizations and a more inclusive legal profession.
LCLD is one of the nation’s leading organizations promoting diversity and consists of more than 430 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners—the leadership of the profession—who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession.
The Top Performer award recognizes those organizations in the top 20 percent for participation in LCLD programs and activities.
Last year, LCLD’s Board of Directors announced a requirement for each Member to create a public pledge detailing actions they will take to advance diverse talent. We are proud to be among those organizations that created a pledge by the June 2022 deadline. To read Firm Chair Christopher R. Maddux’s pledge, please click here.
