Gills Quoted in Crain’s Chicago Business about Law Firm Diversity

15 December 2017 Crain's Chicago Business News
Partner Jeanne Gills was quoted in a Crain’s Chicago Business article, “Chicago Lawyers: Not A Diverse Lot” about the lack of diversity in Chicago law firms. According to Crain’s, Chicago law firms have a lower percentage of minority partners and junior lawyers than peer cities including New York, Washington, DC, Houston and Los Angeles.

Gills, who is also the president of the Chicago Black Partners Alliance, said minority lawyers' underrepresentation in the Chicago bar stems from the same forces as found elsewhere in the country: unconscious bias and limited access to big clients and complex cases, which hampers career advancement.
