Hooper, Lundy & Bookman Achieves Mansfield Certification


LOS ANGELES, October 10, 2023 — Hooper, Lundy & Bookman (HLB) announced today that it has achieved Mansfield Certification, an attainment within the legal industry acknowledging the firm’s commitment toward diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).

Mansfield Certification, awarded by Diversity Lab, measures the structural changes and steps the firm has taken over the past year to ensure its recruitment and paths to leadership are open and transparent to all qualified lawyers.

Mansfield’s focus is on equal opportunity, fairness, and inclusivity. The Mansfield Certification program requirements are anchored in opening the door to wider talent pools, including lawyers who have been historically underrepresented in law, and implementing transparent processes for advancement and leadership. Our participation in the program builds on our previous recruiting efforts using the Mansfield rule.

Mansfield certification is an annual process, and we have renewed our participation in the Diversity Lab’s Midsize-Mansfield program for the current cycle. Hooper, Lundy & Bookman is pleased to have reached this significant milestone, and we are excited to continue our work to help build more inclusive teams that reflect the diversity of our clients and communities.

If you are interested in learning more about HLB’s Mansfield participation, please contact our firm’s DEI Committee Co-Chairs Sandi Krul or Monica Massaro.
