Knobbe Martens Named #1 Best Law Firm for Minority Attorneys by Law360

Knobbe Martens has once again taken the top spot among firms in its category in Law360’s annual “Best Law Firms for Minority Attorneys” rankings, achieving the highest percentage of minority attorneys at the non-partner and partner levels. In addition, the firm ranked sixth in the publication’s 2019 list of the “Best Firms for Minority Equity Partners.”

The rankings are part of Law360’s recently released “Diversity Snapshot,” an annual report analyzing data from more than 300 law firms. The firms were grouped by size based on U.S. attorney headcount, with Knobbe Martens included in the group of firms with 150-299 attorneys.

“Being recognized for having one of the most diverse law firm workforces in the country is a testament to our enduring commitment to attracting and supporting attorneys from all backgrounds,” said Managing Partner Steven Nataupsky. “The benefits this diversity brings to our firm culture and our work with clients is immeasurable.”

Knobbe Martens’ efforts to foster an increasingly diverse and inclusive workforce include active outreach and recruitment, internal programs driven by the firm’s Diversity Committee, and a 1L Diversity Scholarship Program for first-year law students. The firm’s attorneys have diverse cultural and religious backgrounds and speak more than 20 foreign languages from Portuguese to Punjabi.
