Seramount/Working Mother recently revealed its 14th “Best Law Firms for Women” list, and WilmerHale was among the 50 firms that earned spots. Seramount also featured an interview with Partner Felicia Ellsworth on how the firm helps women succeed.
Excerpt: The firm’s family leave program is very generous. And beyond the fact that I was fortunate to take advantage of the program myself, I appreciate that it’s part of the firm’s ethos for all parents people—biological fathers, adoptive parents, and others—to take advantage of the generous parental leave policy, which helps normalize it and ensure that those who do take the leave (which still tends to skew more towards female, biological parents) are not set back in doing so.
WilmerHale is one of only two firms to appear on the “Best Law Firms for Women” list each year since its inception.
