Equality Illinois has recognized SmithAmundsen, among 41 other law firms, for “Raising the Bar” and leading the way in providing a fair and welcoming work environment for LGBT employees and engaging with the LGBT community. These firms were recognized as a result of the 2015 Equality Illinois Law Firm Survey.
Glen Amundsen commented “In less than 20 years, SmithAmundsen has grown from a small litigation firm to a firm of more than 150 corporate and litigation attorneys practicing in seven communities across the Midwest. We credit this success to our true commitment to recruiting, mentoring and empowering individuals who bring differing perspectives and experiences to our firm. We are honored to receive this distinction from Equality Illinois and wholeheartedly plan to continue in our efforts to promote diversity in the legal profession.”
This is the firm's second year being recognized for LGBT inclusiveness by Equality Illinois. For additional information and to view the full list of recognized law firms, visit the Equality Illinois website here.
