Cleveland co-partner-in-charge and the firm's Chief Diversity Officer, Adrian D. Thompson, has been named to the Lawyers of Color’s fifth Power List, which is presented with the support of the Diverse Partners Network. The Power List recognizes the most influential minority attorneys and allies in the United States.
Included on the list are Fortune 1000 general counsel and law school deans, as well as legal media and nonprofit leaders. In addition, the 350 largest law firms were surveyed and provided Lawyers of Color with the names of their attorneys of color who were either managing partners or management committee members.
The Lawyers of Color Power List is the only comprehensive collection of minority leaders in the legal profession. The organization began collecting data because representation and role models are extremely important as legal organizations seek to reach diversity goals and expand the diversity pipeline.
Honorees will be celebrated at a reception at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D. C. on Wed., Feb. 26, 2020.
