JUNE 21, 2019 – The Women in Law Empowerment Forum, which recognizes and promotes advancement of women in the legal profession, has announced that Davis Wright Tremaine has been awarded Gold Standard certification for the ninth consecutive year.

Law firms with 300 or more practicing lawyers in the United States are eligible for 2019 WILEF Gold Standard certification if they successfully demonstrate that women represent a meaningful percentage of their equity partners, highest leadership positions, governance and compensation committees, and most highly compensated partners, and that there is meaningful diversity among their women partners.

Davis Wright is one of only 11 firms in the country to have achieved Gold Standard certification every year since WILEF inaugurated the award in 2011.

Women leaders at Davis Wright Tremaine include the chair of our executive committee and the chairs and co-chairs of many of our leading practice groups.

The firm’s commitment to advancing women extends beyond the walls of the firm and includes Project W, a multi-faceted initiative to help women advance their careers, launch successful companies, and achieve parity in the workplace.
