MGKF strives to create a workplace that promotes and embraces diversity in the areas of race, ethnicity, gender, age, mental/physical abilities, and sexual orientation. We believe that an inclusive environment naturally fosters the best talent to produce excellent results for our clients.
MGKF has been named a Law360 “Ceiling Smasher” and was ranked 23rd nationally for its percentage of women in the partnership based on firms with less than 100 attorneys. While many law firms’ partnership ranks are still dominated by men, MGKF’s female partners account for 38 percent of the partnership and nearly 36 percent of the firm.
Law360’s 2020 Glass Ceiling Report found that women make up 37 percent of all attorneys, but just 25 percent of partners nationally. At the top level of a typical U.S. law firm, women account for only 22 percent of equity partners, but in 2020 38.9 percent of MGKF's equity partners were female, which landed the firm in 8th place for firms with 20-50 attorneys. Currently 50 percent of the equity partners are female.
In addition, we are proud members of the Philadelphia Diversity Law Group (PDLG) and actively participate in PDLG's Fellows Program, the goal of which is to increase the number of lawyers of diverse backgrounds working at Philadelphia area law firms.
