What We Love



With its own child care center located just a block from headquarters, an affordable backup care program that dispenses babysitters and elder care providers, and a “balanced hours coordinator” with information on how to telecommute or work a reduced schedule, this 33-year-old law firm is committed to enhancing attorneys’ quality of life. In support of their professional endeavors, it also collaborates on initiatives that advance women, fostering a close relationship with the National Association of Women Lawyers and the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, and serving as a founding firm member of the Project for Attorney Retention, a nonprofit that aims to lower attrition among female attorneys and move them into leadership roles. Its own Women Rainmakers Program coaches female partners on the best ways to accrue clients and develop their business; a more comprehensive attorney sponsorship initiative is in the works.
