Baker Botts Named Mansfield Certified Plus Firm for Fifth Consecutive Year


HOUSTON, October 10, 2023 – Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international technology, energy and life sciences law firm, has been recognized by Diversity Lab as Mansfield “Certified Plus” for the fifth year in a row.

The Mansfield Rule has become the standard by which law firms track and measure the structural changes and steps taken to ensure that the path to leadership, including lateral hiring, client pitch teams, promotions and appointments are more open and transparent to all qualified lawyers. The “Certified Plus” status further signifies that a firm has not only taken steps to increase diversity in leadership but has also achieved measurable progress.

“We are honored to be named Mansfield Certified Plus yet again,” said Baker Botts Managing Partner, Danny David. “A diverse, equitable and inclusive environment means better innovation, problem-solving, employee engagement, lower turnover and improved recruiting. It also allows us to understand our clients more fully as they continue to prioritize DEI in their own businesses. While we have certainly made progress in achieving a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace, there is more that we can do, and I am committed to supporting those efforts.”

Baker Botts is an international law firm whose lawyers practice throughout a network of offices around the globe. Based on our experience and knowledge of our clients' industries, we are recognized as a leading firm in the energy, technology and life sciences sectors.
