International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP was named again by Working Mother magazine as one of the 2020 “Best Law Firms for Women,” for its use of best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers. The annual list recognizes 60 U.S. law firms for their policies in the advancement of women and for the implementation of work-life balance initiatives. Dorsey is one of only three firms who have been on the list every year for 13 years.
“Law firms on this year’s list were better prepared to respond to the effects of the pandemic because of their continued support of flextime and remote work for working parents and caregivers,” said Subha V. Barry, president of Working Mother Media. “We are proud to recognize their resilience and steadfast commitment to supporting gender equality.”
The full list of the 2020 Working Mother Best Law Firms for Women is posted here and highlights law firms that averaged 23 percent women among equity partners, compared with only 20 percent five years ago. Multicultural women make up 14 percent of equity partners up from 11 percent five years ago.
