Dority & Manning Attains Mansfield Certification

GREENVILLE, SC (June 12, 2023)

Dority & Manning is proud to announce that the firm has achieved Midsize Mansfield Certification status for 2021-2023.

Dority and Manning was one of 95 leading law firms that participated in the current iteration of the Midsize Mansfield Rule that launched on September 15, 2021, and ran through March 14, 2023.

Originating from Diversity Lab, Mansfield Rule certification aims to broaden the representation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ attorneys, and disabled lawyers in law firm ownership and leadership.

“We have great opportunities to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion within our firm as well as within the legal community. Participating in the Mansfield Certification is one of many steps we are taking to make a difference in the industry,” says Anand Patel, Principal and DE&I Committee Chair. “We are grateful for the learnings gleaned from Diversity Lab and the Mansfield Rule certification process and look forward to continuing the progress.”
