DALLAS – Haynes and Boone, LLP has been recognized by Vault, a global resource for career and company information, in its annual Top 100 Law Firms survey.

Haynes and Boone was recognized as one of The Best 20 Law Firms to Work For and was also highlighted for its ongoing commitment to diversity, being listed among the top 20 U.S. law firms in three separate diversity categories.

Haynes and Boone’s rankings were as follows:

• No. 13, The Best 20 Law Firms to Work For
• No. 18, The Best 20 Law Firms for Overall Diversity
• No. 4, The Best 20 Law Firms for Women
• No. 13, The Best 20 Law Firms for Minorities

“Haynes and Boone prides itself on developing and maintaining a working environment that reflects the diverse backgrounds, experiences and attitudes of our lawyers,” said Managing Partner Terry Conner. “Diversity isn’t a buzzword at Haynes and Boone, it is a way of life. We have diverse clients with diverse needs, and in order to best serve them we must mirror that diversity internally.”

Felicity Fowler, partner and chair of the firm’s diversity committee added, “Haynes and Boone has long been recognized as a pioneer in the area of diversity and women initiatives. It is important that we continue to attract and retain lawyers of varied backgrounds. To be recognized by associates both at Haynes and Boone and within the industry means we are continuing to meet and exceed those objectives.”

To compile the rankings, Vault surveyed more than 18,800 associates at more than 167 major law firms across the country and asked them to rank firms in terms of how prestigious it would be to work for them. Quality of life rankings, including the diversity categories, were rated based on associates opinions of their own firms on issues such as treatment by partners, formal training, informal training and mentoring, hours and compensation.
