NOV. 6, 2023 – The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) has recognized Davis Wright Tremaine LLP as a leader in building a more inclusive legal profession and honored the firm with two awards for its work with the organization.

The firm was named to LCLD's 2023 list of Top Performers, which recognizes those organizations in the top 20% for participation in LCLD programs and activities.
