Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that the Firm was named to Exelon’s 2020 D&I Honor Roll, which recognizes business partners for their work to include women and people of color in key roles on Exelon’s account teams as well as additional efforts that highlight the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Blank Rome is notably one of four law firms honored in this year’s select list of 34 companies.
