Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has been recognised by Accenture in its Outside Counsel Diversity Awards for its efforts around increasing equality and inclusion in the legal profession. 

In its second year, the award highlights the tangible inclusion and diversity (I&D) progress of law firms currently working with Accenture.

For its second annual award, Accenture’s legal team analysed the diversity initiatives for 2021 of more than 70 small, medium and large outside counsel law firms, measuring their progress in diversity (both firmwide, and specifically on Accenture matters), wider diversity and inclusion activities and how they advanced diversity commitments across the legal industry.

Baker McKenzie's London Managing Partner, Ed Poulton, commented: "This award recognises our dedication to Inclusion and diversity. We pride ourselves on our commitment to meaningful outcomes, accountable leadership and having a strategic approach to bring about long-term change in this space."

Accenture's General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, Joel Unruch, commented: “The winners share our values and commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We recognise these leaders for their commitment and believe that all our partners have an opportunity to make significant contributions to diversity across the legal profession and to accelerate change.”
