Mintz Wins Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2024 DEI Small Business Company of the Year Award

The Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ) awarded Mintz with the 2024 Wells Fargo DEI Small Business Company of the Year Award. This distinguished recognition is presented to Los Angeles-based organizations for their continued efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and the broader community. 

Los Angeles Managing Member Joshua Briones accepted the award from Wells Fargo on behalf of the office at the LABJ’s 2024 Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Symposium on March 21, 2024. In January, Joshua and Member Arameh Zargham O’Boyle, who also intended the symposium, were named to the LABJ’s 2024 “Leaders of Influence: Minority Attorneys” list for the third consecutive year.

The Los Angeles Business Journal wrote, “The firm has remained steadfast in its commitment to diversity and to making the industry more inclusive. Today Mintz is an AMLaw 100 firm with over 500 attorneys and a global reach. The firm maintains a diverse workplace with eight locations in the United States and Toronto. Diversity and inclusion in the legal profession are at the core of Mintz. The firm consistently exceeds National Association for Law Placement peer averages on partner-level diversity across metrics – by persons of color, gender, and LGBTQ status.”

The publication also recognized Mintz for its observation of Juneteenth and the measures the firm is taking to address the need for more Black attorneys and long-term barriers to equity in the legal industry. 

Mintz was also highlighted for achieving Mansfield Certification for 2022-2023, an important indicator of various diversity qualifications for law firms, and for its support of populations who have historically been disenfranchised from Big Law.
