Law360 has named Fitch, Even, Tabin & Flannery to its inaugural list of “The 100 Best Law Firms for Minority Attorneys.” The rankings for this list were based on the firms’ minority representation at the partner and nonpartner levels and their total number of minority attorneys. Law360 reports that nearly every firm in the Top 100 exceeded the overall average among U.S. law firms of 14 percent minority attorneys and 8 percent minority partners.
Fitch Even was also included in Law360’s list of “The 50 Best Firms for Minority Partners,” which was compiled based on the percentage of equity partners who are minorities.
