The National Law Journal this week released its “Women’s Scorecard,” a ranking of the percentage of female attorneys and female partners at the largest 350 firms in the country in 2019, issued as part of the annual NLJ 500. Overall, women accounted for 37% of firm lawyers, 24% of partners and 21% of equity partners. Firms in the Top 10 with offices in Tennessee included Constangy Brooks Smith & Prophete, FordHarrison, Jackson Lewis, Littler Mendelson and Ogletree Deakins. Above the Law reports it was the first appearance on the list for Ogletree, which recently created a sponsorship program to support female nonequity partners advancing to the equity level.
