November 7, 2022
Miami, FL - Bilzin Sumberg is proud to announce it has been awarded the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance’s Tipping the Scales award in recognition of its accomplishments in achieving gender equity among the firm’s partners. 

The Diversity & Flexibility Alliance is an organization that partners with law firms, associations, and corporations to foster inclusive corporate cultures. Bilzin Sumberg was named as one of its awardees because over half of the firm’s 2022 attorneys promoted to partner are women, making it one of only 57 major law firms out of over 200 that achieved this milestone. 

“We are gratified for this recognition by the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance,” says Jessica Buchsbaum, Chief Legal Talent Officer at Bilzin Sumberg, “This honor affirms to us that Bilzin Sumberg’s focus on diversity and inclusion has resulted in achieving measurable results from our recruitment and retention efforts. We will continue to push the envelope on all fronts when it comes to integrating inclusivity in future initiatives.” 

The Tipping the Scales award forms part of the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance’s 2022 New Partner Report, a yearly compilation and examination of publicly released data from its members, including the nation’s largest and top-grossing law firms. Generated since 2012, the report examines the gender breakdown of attorneys promoted to partnership in the U.S. offices of researched firms.
