Coblentz Named to National Law Journal's 2014 Midsize Hot List
Coblentz has been selected as one of 20 firms named on the National Law Journal’s 2014 Midsize Hot List. According to the NLJ, the exclusive list from across the country highlights firms that “are succeeding at a time when many of their bigger competitors are struggling amid high headcounts and overhead. These midsize firms, ranging from 51 to 150 lawyers, know they can beat the bigger players on price — but they understand that it takes more than lower fees to bring in and retain business. They’ve got to offer great lawyering.”
In its profile of Coblentz, the National Law Journal makes note of the firm’s “forward-thinking approach,” with focus on diversity, community and top talent. As managing partner Danna Kozerski told the National Law Journal, “The way we retain and promote young attorneys is with a collaborative and interesting practice.”
The article notes that 40 percent of Coblentz’s partners and 50 percent of the firm’s associates are women, and highlights the firm’s attorneys as pro bono and volunteer champions, including mention of Coblentz’s 2013 Outstanding Law Firm in Public Service Award from the San Francisco Bar Association’s Justice and Diversity Center.
