International law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP was recently recognized for the third consecutive year as one of the top Illinois law firms for “Raising the Bar” and leading the way in providing a welcoming and fair work environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees and engaging with the LGBT community.
The recognition is based on information gathered from the organization’s 2016 Law Firm Survey.
The leading firms will be recognized in the dedicated publication “Raising the Bar: Law Firms Leading the Way to LGBT Equality” and honored at the Raising the Bar Recognition Breakfast Tuesday, July 26, 2016, at the InterContinental Hotel Chicago.
