Potomac Law is pleased to announce that it has been named to Bloomberg Law’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Framework for the second year in a row. Potomac Law is one of 43 U.S.-based law firms that was recognized for its level of disclosure of diversity-related metrics and distinguished performance against six core pillars: demographics, leadership and talent pipeline, recruitment and retention, business innovation and strategy, marketing, and diversity & inclusion in the community.
“The desire to incorporate DEI into the selection process for outside legal services presents a new challenge for the industry, but Potomac Law has distinguished itself as a law firm worthy of consideration,” said Joe Breda, President, Bloomberg Law. “Through a demonstrated commitment to DEI, Potomac Law is helping to move the legal industry forward and we recognize their performance by naming them as a member of our 2022 DEI Framework.”
“We are deeply honored to be recognized again this year by Bloomberg Law for our DEI efforts,” said Managing Partner Benjamin Lieber. “Diversity and inclusion are fundamental to the firm’s success, and we continue to deploy strategies and programs that make our firm stronger and reaffirm our commitment of fostering a culture where the uniqueness of each of our attorneys and staff members is embraced.”
Bloomberg Law’s DEI Framework was developed in 2021 in collaboration with Bloomberg’s Gender-Equality Index team, as well as diversity leads at corporations and U.S.-based law firms. Performance was assessed across more than 85 metrics, each associated with one of the framework’s six core pillars.
