Best Law Firms for Women Named

Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers today released their list of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women. Of the firms on this year’s list, 78 percent have one or more women among their top 10 rainmakers, up from 69 percent last year. The list is based on factors such as representation of women in the workforce and leadership positions, flexibility, compensation and development and retention of female lawyers. All 50 firms offer flex-time and reduced hours and 48 allow lawyers working reduced hours to be eligible for equity partnership.
