RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Best Best & Krieger LLP is honored to announce that it was named the No. 1 law firm in the United States for equity partner diversity by American Lawyer Media. The ranking was released in conjunction with ALM’s annual Diversity Scorecard, which is based on surveys submitted by law firms nationwide.
 
Overall, BB&K ranked No. 12 on the Diversity Scorecard, considered the gold standard for law firm diversity rankings. It is based on the combined percentage of minority lawyers and minority partners in a firm.
 
“One of our great strengths as a firm is that the backgrounds of our attorneys reflect the diversity of the clients we represent,” said Managing Partner Eric Garner. “Our diversity, combined with our talent, skill and dedication, allow us to bring a great breadth of perspectives to solving our clients’ problems.”
 
At BB&K, diversity and inclusion is a continuing responsibility and a business imperative. It is an investment in the firm’s future and in the clients and communities it serves.

Every year, ALM’s Diversity Scorecard tallies the number of African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic and multiracial attorneys in law firms. A firm is ranked by adding the percentage of all minority lawyers to the percentage of minority partners in its U.S. offices. The larger the number, the higher the firm ranks.
