BakerHostetler Earns High Marks in Facebook Legal Diversity Surveys

News / May 10, 2021

BakerHostetler is proud to have earned high rankings in two legal diversity surveys recently conducted by Facebook.

The firm was ranked No. 4 when Facebook collected diversity data from 40 of its largest-spend U.S.-based outside law firms. In a similar survey of its largest outside counsel patent teams, BakerHostetler was ranked No. 3 of 20.

Facebook’s scoring methodology includes a number of dimensions: diversity staffing on Facebook matters, meaningful and measurable leadership/high-value opportunities given to the diverse attorneys on Facebook matters, diversity initiatives at the firm and diversity makeup of the incoming partner class. Facebook also considers whether the firm has a diverse relationship partner. In scoring the patent firms, Facebook provided a ranking to the 20 firms with the largest patent teams and provided an individual rating for the four firms with the smallest patent teams.

The top-ranked firms will be recognized by Facebook at a virtual event on May 12, 2021. Partner Jeewon Serrato, Counsel Cory Davis and Senior Advisor Mike Ferguson lead the relationship with Facebook.

BakerHostetler is committed to recruiting, developing and promoting diverse talent.
