The Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) has once again named Morrison & Foerster among U.S. firms awarded Gold Standard Certification. In 2020, we were one of 12 firms to achieve a special Ten Year certificate highlighting our continued commitment to women in law.
The Gold Standard Certification is granted to major firms that meet objective benchmarks pertaining to the number of women among equity partners and firm leadership and in the ranks of their most highly compensated partners. To meet the standard, firms must satisfy a 20% minimum of women equity partners, and at least 33% of all attorneys promoted to equity partnerships over the last 12 months must be women, among other requirements.
You can view the full list of recognized firms by visiting the WILEF website.
