Carlton Fields was named a top-ranked firm for diversity among firms of its size by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA). The inaugural MCCA Diversity Scorecard evaluates law firm diversity based on demographics, leadership composition, and the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse lawyers.

“This Scorecard is three years in the making, and I thank the 200+ law firms that transparently shared their data with us, many for over a decade,” MCCA President and CEO Jean Lee in a press release. “Knowledge is power, and this tool provides us with the data to understand each firm’s journey on diversity, culture, and equity — which is the first step to speeding up that journey. Ultimately, that’s how our profession advances: not through soaring rhetoric or empty promises, but through accountability and concrete action.”

Carlton Fields is one of only 10 firms to receive the MCCA ranking among firms with 251 to 500 lawyers. These rankings follow additional honors within the past year recognizing Carlton Fields’ commitment to diversity and inclusion. Notably, the firm earned a perfect score on the 2021 Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index and was recognized as a Leadership Council on Legal Diversity 2020 Top Performer.
