Kean Miller Listed in The American Lawyer’s 2024 Diversity Scorecard

Kean Miller is pleased to announce that the firm is recognized in The American Lawyer’s 2024 Diversity Scorecard. The annual survey ranks more than 200 law firms across a series of metrics, which are then combined into an overall diversity score. The survey tracks the percentage of racially and ethnically diverse lawyers and partners in law firms as well as the percentage of minorities in leadership roles, in equity partner positions, and among the hires, departures, and promotions of partners.

Kean Miller is ranked 108th on the 2024 Diversity Scorecard: Minority Representation. There are 208 law firms listed, ordered by diversity score, which considers the percentages of minority attorneys overall, as well as in partner and leadership ranks. Kean Miller is the only Baton Rouge-based firm recognized and is ranked second among six Louisiana-founded law firms.

“To be ranked 108th in this important survey is proof that Kean Miller punches above its weight in national rankings of law firm diversity metrics. Many of the firms represented in the 2024 Diversity Scorecard are AmLaw 100 and AmLaw 200 firms, making this recognition an even more powerful statement about Kean Miller’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive legal profession,” said Linda Perez Clark, Managing Partner of the 214-attorney firm.

In addition, the firm is ranked 84th on the 2024 Diversity Scorecard: Women’s Scorecard. There are 247 law firms listed, ordered by the percentages of women attorneys overall, as well as in partnership and leadership ranks. Only the largest 350 firms by headcount are eligible for the Women’s Scorecard.
