West Palm Beach, Fla., April 19, 2016 – Lewis, Longman & Walker was recently listed as one of Law360’s 100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys. Law360 ranked firms by examining a variety of factors, such as the percentage of partners, both equity and non-equity, who are women; the percentage of associate-level attorneys who are women; and the divide between those two. For the firms that nabbed spots on the list, the number of women at all levels of the firm shows that firm leaders are finding some new ways to open doors and increase diversity. The ranking also takes into account female attorneys in leadership positions. At LLW, the firm President is female and three-quarters of the firm’s Executive Committee are women.
The 100 firms that are included on this list are working to buck the industry’s overall trend. Law360’s 2016 Glass Ceiling report found that just 34 percent of all attorneys and a mere 22 percent of partners at the U.S. law firms surveyed by Law360 are women. Those numbers have barely budged over the past few years, indicating that the legal industry has struggled to make much progress in giving women new opportunities to shine in the profession.
