Jackson Lewis Named a Finalist for MCCA's Thomas L. Sager Award

NEW YORK, NY (October 19, 2021) Nationwide employment law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. is pleased to announce the firm has been named a finalist for the Minority Corporate Counsel Association’s (MCCA) 2021 Thomas L. Sager Award. The award recognizes law firms that champion a more diverse and inclusive workforce and have demonstrated a commitment to improving the hiring, retention and promotion of diverse attorneys.

“Being named a finalist by such an esteemed organization is an amazing achievement,” said Firm Chair Kevin G. Lauri. “Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is a priority at Jackson Lewis and remains a core value as we expand. The firm recognizes it is our collective responsibility to create an environment that motivates and encourages our attorneys to reach their full potential. We are grateful for MCCA’s nomination and look forward to continuing to do great work in the DEI space.”

The Sager Award is presented to large Am Law 200 law firms (500+ attorneys) that are leading the charge to create more diverse and equitable workplaces in the legal industry. Finalists are selected based on rigorous review and scoring of the nominees’ efforts across recruitment, retention, professional development, promotion, and other innovative practices that break down barriers to entry for minorities in the legal profession.

In addition to the Sager Award, the firm recently achieved the highest designation of Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Certification Plus for the second year in a row after completing the 12-month Mansfield Rule 4.0 certification program. Jackson Lewis also recently partnered with the Association of Corporate Counsel’s (ACC’s) Employment and Labor Law Network (ELLN) to develop “RACE Talks: Realign Act Change Engage,” a 10-week racial equity education program focusing on individual transformation and change to ensure a more racially just workplace and society.
