June 29, 2021 (Milwaukee) – The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that it will participate in the Mansfield Rule 5.0 certification process, which is designed to increase the representation of diverse lawyers in law firm leadership.

Operated by Diversity Lab, Mansfield Rule certification has helped participating firms over its first four years significantly increase the representation of diverse attorneys in their management committees. This year’s process begins July 15.

To receive Mansfield Rule 5.0 certification, firms must track and measure that they have considered at least 30 percent women, lawyers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, lawyers with disabilities and LGBTQ+ lawyers for top leadership roles, senior-level lateral hiring, equity partnership and participation in client meetings.

“Our firm has a long-standing and demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion,” said Mike Aldana, managing partner. “We are intent on continuing to build the type of welcoming, inclusive and collaborative culture that will enable us to attract and retain high-performing attorneys and staff. Mansfield Rule certification will play an important role in helping us achieve this goal.”
