On April 17, 2016, Law360 published their second annual 100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys and The Best Law Firms For Female Partners lists that surveyed law firms across the United States. We are proud to announce that Liebert Cassidy Whitmore was ranked in the #4 spot in both of these categories. As Law360 mentions:
"These firms partnership ranks run counter to the prevailing trend in the industry, where female partners can seem few and far between."
The lists focused on identifying the 100 best U.S. law firms for women, based on the female representation at the partner and non-partner levels and its total number of female attorneys. Law360 reports that at LCW "…more than 50 percent of the entire attorney workforce are women, and more than 48 percent of their partner ranks are women." These numbers stand out in comparison to the legal industry's overall trend where, according to the 2016 Glass Ceiling report, just 34 percent of all attorneys and 22 percent of partners are women.
Liebert Cassidy Whitmore is dedicated to maintaining a diverse workplace that values differences, from the way we relate to and support each other, to the way we work together as one firm to meet the needs of our clients. The firm is proud to receive this recognition and to continue the Firm's long-standing tradition of women leaders.
