Law firms talk about the importance of diversity, but at Fenwick & West, success or failure on that front can be felt in partners' wallets.

Fenwick mandates so-called "upward" reviews where associates specifically evaluate how much a partner has done to support diversity at the firm. And partner Laurence Pulgram says his bonus for diversity-related activities helped raise his own consciousness.
