Working Mother revealed its annual “Best Law Firms for Women” list today, recognizing firms that utilize best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers. For the sixth time, Gray Plant Mooty was among the 60 firms that earned spots on this year’s list.
“Gray Plant Mooty has been a pioneer in the advancement of women in the legal profession,” said Co-Managing Officer Sarah Duniway. “The firm has taken the long view by adapting to societal changes and creatively meeting the needs of its attorneys and its clients. Policies and practices extend beyond hiring and promoting women to include mentoring programs and a new gender-neutral parental leave policy and toolkit.”
The full 2018 Working Mother Best Law Firm list highlights law firms where, on average, nearly half of associates and more than one-third of partners are women, while one-fifth of equity partners are women. The acknowledged firms also increasingly offer extended parental-leave benefits and encourage more lawyers to work remotely and use flexible hours.
