Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete is pleased to announce that it has been ranked as the No. 1 Law firm for diversity in the 2019 Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms. The firm tanked in the top two in five diversity categories, including:
- #1 Best Law Firm for Diversity Overall
- #1 Best Law Firm for Women
- #1 Best Law Firm for Minorities
- #2 Best Law Firm for Individuals with Disabilities
- #2 Best Law Firm for LGBT Diversity
According to the 2019 Vault.com survey, associates at Constangy say that “diverse hiring, retention, and promotion are all visibly prioritized here” and that “women, minorities, and LGBT individuals are highly represented at all levels.”
“Constangy has made a concerted effort to weave diversity into its culture and has adopted a top-down strategy,” said Matt Moody, Vault's senior law editor. “More than 40 percent of its partners are women and minority attorneys and name partner Don Prophete is the only African American on the masthead of a large law firm.”
The Vault Law 100 ranking is based on scores from nearly 20,000 law firm associates surveyed earlier this year, who were asked to rate law firms on a scale of 1 to 10 based on prestige. The Vault diversity rankings are based on associate perceptions of how firms create, maintain and foster diverse workplaces.
