The Los Angeles Business Journal has named Reed Smith a “Leader of Influence” and one of the region’s “Most Admired Law Firms to Work for 2023.”

According to the Journal, law firms that are distinguished as “most admired to work for” are “consciously working towards creating diverse, positive, and supportive environments to help drive the success of their attorneys – the key to attracting and retaining top talent!”

Reed Smith was profiled in a special supplement published this week, in which the firm was honored for its “demonstration of impact made on the profession and L.A. community, as well as programs and initiatives that benefit staff.”

Reed Smith was also highlighted as “a recognized brand for driving client-facing knowledge and innovation in the legal industry, be it providing clients with new shared-service solutions, or launching new technologies that support their business, legal, and knowledge management objectives.”

The firm was further profiled for its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and women’s career advancement initiatives, and its mission focus “on the recruitment, retention, promotion and professional development of the firm’s diverse talent.” The 2022 launch of Reed Smith’s global ESG practice, which comprises 60 transactional, environmental, corporate, regulatory and disputes lawyers, was likewise highlighted.
