Reed Smith is offering 50 hours of billable hour credit for race- and gender-related work to all of the firm’s timekeepers. The Am Law 100 firm says it is the first to extend such a policy outside of its attorney ranks.

The policy, which is effective immediately and retroactive to the start of 2021, allows timekeepers to count 50 hours of credit to their billable hour targets for diversity-related activities including leading diversity projects, serving in leadership on firm committees or subcommittees, acting as a mentor to a diverse employee and presenting or preparing materials for use in diversity programming, among others.
