New York, NY – August 3 2022 – FisherBroyles, LLP is pleased to announce it was ranked among the ten most diverse equity partnership law firms of its size, by Law360 Pulse – a business of law news service owned by LexisNexis – the leading international publisher.

In the group of equity partnerships comprising 251 to 600 attorneys, FisherBroyles ranked in the top ten in terms of diversity with 13.1% of its partners identifying as members of minority groups.

This achievement is especially important as the legal industry has been struggling to translate increased minority group enrolment in law university courses into higher representation rates within the legal profession. Fewer than 11% percent of equity partners in the US currently identify as persons of color.

 

James Fisher, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner of FisherBroyles, said:

“FisherBroyles’ distributed law firm model was founded in the spirit of forward thinking and a progressive way of working – which includes an inclusive work environment. We are proud to be living up to our high ambitions of a Firm open to everyone irrespective of gender, cultural or ethnic background. We believe diversity is an integral part to FisherBroyles’ continued growth and success.”

 

Kevin Broyles, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner of FisherBroyles, commented:

“Diversity is core to FisherBroyles’ operations and we embrace multiple perspectives –be they practice areas, geographies or cultures – on our journey to building the next generation law firm. As we grow domestically and internationally, we are committed to making the legal industry more equitable and inclusive.”

 

FisherBroyles pioneered the distributed law firm model since 2002. The Firm’s recent inclusion in the prestigious Am Law 200 ranking and record year-on-year growth of 29.3% in 2021 have validated its non-traditional business model and strategy.
