Jenner & Block is one of only 67 law firms celebrated by the Diversity and Flexibility Alliance for having 50 percent or more women in their 2021 new partner classes. In 2021, the firm elevated seven lawyers to partner; four of those were women. They included Lori B. Day, Tassity Johnson, Elin I. Park, and Jenna E. Ross.

Recognized as “Tipping the Scales,” the firms were identified through the Alliance’s New Partner Report,a compilation of public data released each year for the past 10years. The Report revealed that 42.4 percent of new partners from a representative sample of 122 major US law firms in 2021 were women, which represents an increase from last year’s figure of 40.9 percent.
