CSG Law Climbs the American Lawyer Diversity and Women in Law Scorecards Ranking for 2024

Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC (“CSG Law”) recently jumped in its ranking in the American Lawyer’s 2024 Diversity and Women in Law Scorecards. Firms included on this list were based on percentages of minority and women representation in attorneys overall and partnership and leadership ranks at each firm.

CSG Law’s ranking rose to 30th place out of more than 245 national law firms listed in the Women in Law Scoreboard, compared to its 59th place ranking in 2023. Additionally, the firm’s ranking climbed to 198th place in the Diversity Scoreboard, an improvement from 209th place last year.

The scorecard, according to the American Lawyer, “evaluates firms based on their ability to attract, retain and promote talent from demographics that are historically underrepresented in the legal industry.” This acknowledgement is the latest recognition of the CSG Law’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (“DEI”) Committee and Women’s Initiative.

The CSG Law DEI Committee and Women’s Initiative are focused on helping to shape the future of the firm through providing professional development and mentorship, opportunities for collaboration with external organizations and support of pipeline programs to increase opportunities and access for others.

In previous years, this scorecard was published in tandem with the NJL500. This year, and for the first time, the Women in Law Scorecard was published along with the Diversity Scorecard with the American Lawyer. “[G]oing forward, all scorecards will continue to be released annually as a single package,” the publication said.

“We hope these scorecards inspire ongoing progress on these fronts, but we are also mindful that DEI is a ‘team sport’ in which the best kind of progress is industrywide progress,” the publication said.
