Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers have again recognized us as one of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women. The annual list recognizes firms "leading the industry in creating and using best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers."
This is the seventh year we have been recognized. Winning firms are those which support flexible work arrangements while also focusing on women's business development and parity in compensation, as well as increasing their representation among the equity partnership and leadership ranks.
Working Mother magazine is published by Working Mother Media, a division of the Bonnier Corporation. Flex-Time Lawyers is an international consulting firm.
"The Best Law Firms for Women are not only setting the standard for the modern-day law firm in supporting flexible work arrangements and offering generous paid leave but also ensuring that lawyers who take advantage of these programs are not excluded from the partnership track," said Working Mother Editor-in-Chief Meredith Bodgas.
Over the last 10 years, the percentage of female equity partners has increased to 20 percent from 16 percent, and female non-equity partners has grown to 30 percent from 22 percent at the Best Law Firms. Also, according to the National Association of Women Lawyers, the Best Law Firms employ more female equity partners (20 percent) than the national average (18 percent).
