Los Angeles, CA – On May 27, 2019, Law360 published their annual Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys list that surveyed more than 300 law firms across the United States. For the fourth consecutive year, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore (“LCW”) has made the list of top law firms for female attorneys.  This year, Liebert Cassidy Whitmore was ranked in the top three firms with 50-149 attorneys on staff.

As Law360 indicates, the firms included are “leading the pack in representing women at all levels.” The list focused on identifying the best U.S. law firms for women, based on the female representation at the partner and non-partner levels as well as its total number of female attorneys.

“Liebert Cassidy Whitmore’s ranking this year exemplifies our internal commitment to one of our core values – promoting a diverse and discrimination-free workplace,” said Ms. Shelline Bennett, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Sacramento and Fresno offices. “It is an honor to be part of a firm that ranks so highly in this report, and where attorneys are encouraged to strive for both the highest quality service and utmost in professional growth and satisfaction.”

Fifty-five percent of LCW’s attorney workforce is comprised of female attorneys.  In addition, fifty-one percent of the partners are female.  These numbers nearly double the legal industry’s overall average where, according to Law360, firms of comparable size are thirty-five percent female and only twenty-seven percent of partners are female.

Liebert Cassidy Whitmore is honored to be included in Law360’s list and to be recognized for its long-standing tradition of inclusiveness and diversity in its ranks and in its leadership.
