A new searchable legal directory lists firms owned by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender lawyers and partners who identify themselves as LGBT.
The directory lists partners from several top law firms, including Foley & Lardner, which sponsored the directory, the Am Law Daily reports. The publisher is the National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Bar Association.
The aim of the directory is to help diversity-minded clients locate LGBT lawyers, according to D’Arcy Kemnitz, executive director of the National LGBT Bar Association. The directory lists more than 300 LGBT lawyers who have made partner or established their own practices, according to a press release.
