July 23, 2017 – Liebert Cassidy Whitmore has been named a best law firm for female attorneys again in the Law360 third annual Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys list published today. The list surveyed law firms across the United States and Liebert Cassidy Whitmore was ranked in the #2 spot in law firms of comparable size.

As Law360 mentions, the firms on this list are ones that “are outpacing their peers in breaking down the old boys’ club and moving the industry toward a more inclusive status quo.” The list focused on identifying the best U.S. law firms for women, based on the female representation at the partner as well as non-partner levels and its total number of female attorneys.

 “Liebert Cassidy Whitmore has been dedicated to advancing equality since our inception, and I am proud our firm ranks so highly in this report,” said Shelline Bennett, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Fresno and Sacramento offices. “I am thankful to be a part of a firm that values women in leadership and to work with so many accomplished women who are amazing lawyers, colleagues, friends, and partners.”

At LCW more than 50 percent of the attorney workforce is women, and more than 48 percent of the partner ranks are women. These numbers stand out in comparison to the legal industry’s overall trend where, according to the Law360 report, just fewer than 45 percent of nonpartners and 23 percent of partners are female. The Firm is honored to be recognized for its long-standing tradition of inclusiveness and diversity in its ranks and in its leadership.

Liebert Cassidy Whitmore is a law firm that provides comprehensive, responsive, and highly skilled legal advice, representation, litigation services, negotiations and training to California’s public employers, private schools and non-profits. Liebert Cassidy Whitmore serves more than 75% of California cities, 80% of its counties and 97% of its community college districts. The Firm has offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, San Diego, and Sacramento.
