JUNE 23, 2022 – In recognition of the firm's strength in recruiting, retaining, promoting, and developing women lawyers, Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media) has named Davis Wright Tremaine LLP one of the country's 50 Best Law Firms for Women.
This is the ninth consecutive year that Davis Wright has been named to the list. The firm achieved its highest-ever ranking.
"We're determined to create a culture and establish firm policies that allow all of our attorneys, including our talented women attorneys, who have been historically underrepresented in the legal industry, to have and see a path to success," said Scott MacCormack, Davis Wright's firmwide managing partner. "This is not only the right thing to do, it's essential to delivering the best client service and attracting the best talent."
The Best Law Firms for Women application included more than 300 questions about demographics, flexibility, paid time off and parental leaves, as well as development and retention of women.
Davis Wright is widely acknowledged as a DEI leader. In the most recent Chambers & Partners guide to the U.S. legal industry, the firm was one of just three nationwide to be recognized for the high percentage of women among its top-ranked attorneys. The firm also jumped 71 spots in the 2022 American Lawyer Diversity Scorecard.
