PALO ALTO, October 14, 2019 – Baker Botts L.L.P., a leading international technology and energy law firm, announced today that the firm has been named one of the top 10 firms for leadership and IP diversity & inclusion by ChIPs, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing and connecting women in technology, law and policy. This is Baker Botts’ second consecutive year listed in the top 10.

The 2019 ChIPs Honor Roll is given to firms with the highest ChIPs Index Scores on the Inclusion Blueprint, a joint initiative with Diversity Lab that measures gender diversity and inclusion practices in law firm leadership and in the IP practice group.

Baker Botts was recently recognized by Diversity Lab as “Mansfield Certified Plus.” The “Certified Plus” status signifies that the firm not only considered at least 30% women, people of color and LGBTQ lawyers for leadership positions and in lateral recruiting over the year, but also achieved representation of at least 30% women and diverse lawyers in several key areas – including significant leadership roles and promotions.
