Lightfoot Achieves Midsize Mansfield Certification Plus Status

BIRMINGHAM, AL—Lightfoot, Franklin & White LLC is pleased to announce the firm has received Diversity Lab’s Midsize Mansfield Certification, as well as Certification Plus status as part of the second midsized law firm cohort.

The process for certification measures whether midsize firms have considered at least 30% women lawyers, underrepresented racial and ethnic lawyers, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and lawyers with disabilities for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, formal client pitches, lateral lawyer hiring and more.

To become Midsize Certified, firms between 25 to 150 lawyers complete a rigorous 18-month collaboration with Diversity Lab to track, measure and achieve diversity in leadership. Certified midsize firms must also embed transparency in their advancement processes through written leadership role descriptions and clearly defined pathways to promotion. Firms for this year’s cohort were evaluated from September 2021 to March 2023.
