WilmerHale was recognized among Law360's Top 100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys, an annual ranking based on a firm's female attorney representation.
As stated by Law360, “These firms are working to buck the industry's overall trend. Our 2016 Glass Ceiling report found that just 34 percent of all attorneys and a mere 22 percent of partners at the US law firms surveyed by Law360 are women.”
Recognizing the need for progress, WilmerHale's Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI) continues to be a unique aspect of the firm's culture. Implemented to address issues affecting primarily female attorneys, both informal and formal programs have been designed to help women succeed in the legal industry. The WLI focuses its effort on internal and external networks, business development training, and training programs that are tailored to the needs and interests of female attorneys.
In addition to Law360's ranking, WilmerHale was also recently named a firm of choice and one of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women by Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers.
