Award Equality Illinois

Top Illinois LGBT-Friendly Firm

Equality Illinois recognized Kirkland as one of the top Illinois law firms for LGBT equality in its 2013 Law Firm Survey. This is the fourth year in a row that Equality Illinois has honored the Firm for providing a safe and fair work environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and for engaging with the LGBT community.

“We are honored that Equality Illinois has recognized Kirkland among the top law firms for LGBT inclusiveness for the fourth-straight year,” said intellectual property partner Jordan Heinz, a member of Kirkland’s LGBT Subcommittee of the Firmwide Diversity Committee. “At Kirkland, you find not only the passion and commitment to building a vibrant LGBT community, but also the policies and programs to provide support on a Firmwide level.”
