United States: Seyfarth Recognized As A Top Illinois Law Firm For LGBTQ Equality By Equality Illinois
Last Updated: August 16 2017

Seyfarth Shaw LLP has been recognized as a Top Illinois Law Firm for LGBTQ Equality by Equality Illinois. Equality Illinois recognized law firms in Illinois for leading the way in 2017 in providing a welcoming and fair work environment for LGBTQ employees and for supporting the LGBTQ community.

"At Seyfarth, commitment to diversity and inclusion is a core value. We strive every day to make the firm inclusive and welcoming for employees and clients, to develop LGBT-inclusive employment and employee-benefit best practices, and to contribute to the LGBT community both through pro-bono work and through our deep commitment to local and national LGBT organizations," said Sam Schwartz-Fenwick, partner and national chair of Seyfarth's LGBT Affinity Group.

The recognition results from the annual Equality Illinois Law Firm Survey, which found that more law firms are willing to create affirming work spaces for their own employees, engage the LGBTQ community and demand that the vendors and contractors with whom they work show the same respect.
