The Black Attorney Affinity Group

The Black Attorney Affinity Group (BAAG) embodies the talents and strengths of black attorneys across the Firm, focusing on mentorship and networking, recruitment and retention, pro bono initiatives, business development and client outreach.

Our People

  • Of the Firm’s black attorneys, there are 9 partners, 1 counsel, and 27 associates in the U.S. and London offices. Since 2016, Weil has promoted 5 Black attorneys to partner internally.
  • Each affinity group has an appointed senior leader sponsor, who is not a member of that demographic group. The sponsors are charged with understanding key issues the group members face and advocating for necessary change. David Lender, Co-Chair of the Firm’s Litigation Department, is the Management Committee Sponsor for the Black Attorney Affinity Group.
