May 20, 2021

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP is pleased to announce its office and practice group leaders across the firm.

The partners reflect the next generation of firm leaders and represent a diverse range of backgrounds and perspectives.  Over 50 percent of our local office leaders are diverse, and 75 percent of our practice groups are co-chaired by a diverse partner.  They include both seasoned and new firm leaders.  Over 30 percent are occupying their respective leadership roles for the first time.

“We are committed to ensuring that our lawyers can look upward to see themselves reflected in the leadership of the firm,” said Gibson Dunn’s Chair and Managing Partner Barbara Becker.  “Diversity in the leadership ranks is critical to our continued success as one of the preeminent law firms in the world.  We are excited about these meaningful opportunities being provided to the next generation of leaders.

“In addition, our local office and practice group leaders will serve as key partners in driving forward the firm’s strategic vision, while further engaging and sustaining our commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion across all functions. They are excellent lawyers who have outstanding leadership skills and share the firm’s core values,” added Becker.

These new leadership roles are effective immediately.
