Working Mother revealed its 13th “Best Law Firms for Women” list today, recognizing firms that utilize best practices in finding, retaining, promoting and developing women lawyers. WilmerHale was among the 60 firms that earned spots on this year’s list and is one of only three Hall of Fame firms recognized for being on the list since its inception.

“Law firms on this year’s list were better prepared to respond to the effects of the pandemic because of their continued support of flextime and remote work for working parents and caregivers,” said Subha V. Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “We are proud to recognize their resilience and steadfast commitment to supporting gender equality.”

The 2020 Working Mother Best Law Firms for Women application, administered by the Working Mother Research Institute, includes more than 300 questions about attorney demographics at different levels, schedule flexibility, paid time off and parental leaves, and development and retention of women.
