WeilPride (LGBTQ+ Association of Weil)

WeilPride, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer+ Affinity Group of Weil, was established with the primary purpose of enhancing the recruitment and retention of LGBTQ+ attorneys and fostering a better understanding among all of the Firm’s attorneys and staff of the unique issues facing the LGBTQ+ community.

Our People

  • Of the LGBTQ+ attorneys at the Firm, 8 are partners, 7 are counsel, and 48 are associates in the U.S. and London offices.
  • Inspired by Out Leadership, the PLUS (+) in LGBTQ+ ensures that we will always be inclusive of all identities, making our community feel welcomed and helping to ensure that nobody is left out.
  • Weil was named among the “Best Places to Work” for LGBTQ+ individuals by the Human Rights Campaign’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index.
  • 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. Co-Chair of the global Litigation Department, Jonathan Polkes, is the Management Committee Sponsor for WeilPride.
