JULY 25, 2017 – For the fourth straight year, Davis Wright Tremaine has been named to Working Mother magazine’s list of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women.
The annual list recognizes firms that lead the industry in supporting women’s business development and career advancement, as well as offering flexible work arrangements, generous parental leave policies, and other important benefits.
Davis Wright Tremaine’s success in elevating women to positions of leadership is notable, even by the standards of the Best Law Firms for Women list. The magazine reported that women make up, on average, 18% of equity partners at law firms nationally and 20% of equity partners at firms on the list. At Davis Wright Tremaine, 24% of equity partners are women.
In comments about Davis Wright Tremaine’s strengths, the magazine wrote: “Monthly peer mentoring circles hosted by this firm’s women’s network help attorneys manage their careers and advocate for themselves. The Flexible Schedule Attorney Affinity Group clarifies for everyone the specifics involved in maintaining customized work arrangements.”
Among the firm’s other successful initiatives are the Women’s Summits, held in multiple cities, which connect associates, counsel, and senior women for a full day of networking, Q&A, and discussions related to business/client development, partnership process, and more. Project W, a multifaceted campaign on the part of Davis Wright Tremaine to help professional women advance their careers, launch successful companies, and achieve parity in the workplace, is providing leadership exposure and opportunities for many women lawyers at the firm.
Davis Wright Tremaine was also recently honored by the Women in Law Empowerment Forum, a nationally recognized educational venue for women in the largest law firms and corporate law departments. The firm was one of just seven nationwide to meet all of the Forum’s 2017 Gold Certification benchmarks.
The Best Law Firms for Women were selected from a pool of applicant firms with 50 or more lawyers in the U.S.
