Global law firm Goodwin announced today that it has placed among the top ten highest scoring firms in the inaugural Inclusion Blueprint Survey. In addition, Goodwin ranked among the top two firms by total points for tracking inclusion activities in both firm leadership and within its Intellectual Property Litigation practice.
The survey is a joint initiative between ChIPs, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing and connecting women in technology, law, and policy, and Diversity Lab, an incubator for innovative ideas and solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in law. It measures gender diversity in law firm leadership as well as the work experiences of women at the practice group level, with a particular focus on intellectual property.
“We are proud to be recognized as a leading firm in the ChIPs Inclusion Blueprint Survey,” said Elaine Herrmann Blais, partner and head of the Litigation Department in Goodwin’s Boston office. “In addition to this recognition, our firm is a certified signatory of the Mansfield Rule, and we have been implementing a number of internal initiatives to mitigate the impact of unconscious bias. Our Intellectual Property Litigation practice has continually demonstrated commitment to supporting and advancing women, and we are pleased that our efforts are contributing to a cultural shift at our firm and in the legal profession.”
