Jenner & Block ranks No. 1 in the National Law Journal’s 2022 LGBTQ Scorecard, with about 11.5 percent of lawyers identifying as LGBTQ.
Announcing the results of the survey, the publication highlighted the firm’s work in support of LGBTQ groups, including a recent amicus brief in Doe v. Abbott, a legal challenge to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order treating gender-affirming care for youth as child abuse.
“Being LGBTQ-diverse creates an environment where people feel comfortable being their authentic selves,” Associate Andrew G. Sullivan, a co-chair of the firm’s LGBT Forum, told the National Law Journal. Jenner & Block has been in the top five since the NLJ launched the LGBTQ Scorecard.
