The lists, published by MultiCultural Law magazine, showcase “the firms that are making the case for diversity and setting the tone for inclusion.” The honorees are chosen through a nationwide survey of lawyers and legal professionals.

Ballard Spahr works to ensure diversity through its Diversity Council. The results of its work are clear. Three of Ballard Spahr’s 13 offices are managed by partners of color, two of whom are women. Sixteen of its practices are led by women. Of the partners at Ballard Spahr, a quarter are women.

“I am proud that the firm has been included on these lists for the last six years. Even during difficult economic times, when diversity efforts seem to take a huge hit, we must work harder to remain a leader in diversity,” said Virginia G. Essandoh, the firm's Chief Diversity Officer.
