Working Mother magazine has recognized Morrison & Foerster as one of the 2018 Best Law Firms for Women for utilizing best practices to retain and promote women lawyers. MoFo was among 60 firms that earned spots on this year’s list.
"The law firms that make Working Mother's list are remarkable for their long-term commitment to retaining and promoting women lawyers," said Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. "One hundred percent of these firms provide flexible work arrangements and 57 percent of them offer sponsorship programs for high-potential women lawyers. That's resulted in a jump in the number of women equity partners to 21 percent."
This marks the fifth consecutive year that Working Mother has recognized MoFo as a leader in promoting and advancing women within the legal profession. MoFo has appeared on the Best Law Firms list a total of nine years.
The 2018 Working Mother Best Law Firms for Women application included more than 300 questions about attorney representation, schedule flexibility, paid time off and parental leaves, and development and retention of women. Profiles are culled from the applications and reflect 2017 data. The ABA Journal acts as a partner in recruiting participant firms and publicizing results.
