Knobbe Martens Recognized by Law360 2017 Diversity Snapshot

Knobbe Martens has once again been recognized by Law360 as one of the most diverse law firms in the United States. The publication released its 2017 Diversity Snapshot this week, identifying the firm as one of the most diverse firms of its size for both minority attorneys and minority equity partners.

Law360’s report analyzed data from more than 300 law firms, grouping them by size based on U.S. attorney headcount and ranking those with above-average minority representation. Knobbe Martens placed 4th among mid-sized firms with 150-299 lawyers for its percentage of minority partner and non-partner attorneys. In addition, the firm ranked 8th in the same category for minority equity partners. Knobbe Martens has almost double the national average of racial or ethnic minority equity partners.

“Diversity at Knobbe Martens extends to the highest levels of partnership, and has greatly enhanced our ability to provide first-rate services to our intellectual property clients worldwide,” said Managing Partner Steven Nataupsky. “We will continue to work tirelessly to encourage diversity at all levels for the benefit of our clients and the firm.”
