It’s been a banner year for female attorneys at this law firm, who made up 75% of the most recent partner class (up from 50% in 2014) and were named managing partner of four U.S. offices (bringing their total to five). Much of their success stems from the work of its Board Committee on Advancing Women, which identifies female talent early on and promotes career development and sponsorship. Dedicated leadership conferences and employee networks further support women. Anyone who wants to use a flexible schedule can do so with no questions asked, management says.
