Law firms that fight discrimination have a diversity problem

  • Top lawyers at Sanford Heisler Sharp, a firm known for representing victims of discrimination, made offensive remarks about race, ethnicity, and gender, Law360 reported this week.
  • Even as “Big Law” firms that defend corporate titans in litigation have been in the spotlight for their lack of lawyers of color, firms that represent plaintiffs have their own issues with racial representation.
  • Surveys of plaintiffs’ law firms in Pennsylvania and California have found that minority groups are underrepresented when compared to the population of lawyers as a whole.
  • Lower compensation, a lack of client pressure, and the prevalence of small, sometimes family-run firms may be factors, observers say.

How Wall Street, law firms are throwing remote holiday parties

  • The office holiday party will look much different this year for big financial-services companies and law firms, which are known for throwing lavish winter holiday affairs that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. 
  • As new coronavirus cases spike across most of the US, some firms are scrapping what were socially distanced events for fully virtual parties, event planners told us.
  • Firms are also generally concerned about appearing insensitive or frivolous during a difficult economic period, an attitude that mirrors a sentiment from companies in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

When the pandemic hit in March, affordable housing investment firm Yes Communities was negotiating a deal to purchase a portfolio of mobile-home communities across the country for more than $1 billion.

But the sale posed a significant challenge at a time when many government offices were closed and in-person meetings were off the table: Denver-based Yes couldn’t record the mortgages because government offices in the states the 49 properties were spread across had been closed.

“They had essentially gone hard, and the whole deal needed to be pieced back together again,” said Ness Cohen, chair of the national real estate practice at the global law firm Clifford Chance, who represented the buyer on the deal.

    Small firms excel in criminal law, Singapore News & Top Stories
