CHICAGO – Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP is pleased to announce that for the seventh consecutive year, it has been named among the nation’s “Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity” by MultiCultural Law magazine. The firm is also ranked on two of the publication’s specialized lists: the “Top 100 Law Firms for Women” and the “Top 50 Law Firms for Associates.” The lists will be published in the Spring 2011 issue of MultiCultural Law.

“Our firm’s commitment to aggressively pursuing diversity goes well beyond fulfilling the mandates of corporate counsel,” said Leslie D. Minier, Katten’s chief diversity officer and a corporate partner in the firm’s Chicago office. “Diversity is deeply woven into our firm’s culture and is critical to ensuring that Katten is a place where people enjoy working, and a firm with which the world’s leading corporations want to conduct business. We applaud MultiCultural Law for advocating for diversity within our profession, and we are pleased to be recognized once again for our efforts in this area.”

MultiCultural Law has established itself as a leading media advocate for law professionals, acknowledging the industry’s “movers and shakers” and celebrating the proactive achievements of law firms that continue to make a positive difference in the drive for diversity and inclusion. MultiCultural Law distributes surveys annually to law firms across the nation and derives their diversity statistics to create the highly competitive “Top 100 Law Firms for Diversity” and related specialized lists.

Katten is dedicated to the achievement of diversity within the firm and in the broader legal community. The firm actively promotes a diverse culture through its recruitment, mentoring, training, professional development and public service programs. As a result of its efforts, Katten has been included on Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers’ list of the “50 Best Law Firms for Women” for four consecutive years. In addition, Working Mother named Katten among its “100 Best Companies” in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Katten was one of only four law firms in the country to make the “100 Best Companies” list.
