Foley & Lardner LLP issued the following announcement on July 16.
Foley has been recognized as a ‘best law firm for women’ for the seventh consecutive year by Working Mother.
The annual Working Mother “Best Law Firms for Women” ranking highlights the top 60 law firms that define and implement best practices in recruiting, retaining, promoting and developing women lawyers. Firms are measured by female representation in the workforce; time-off and leaves; child care; flexibility; leadership, compensation and advancement of women; and development and retention of women.
Foley offers an array of career programs and initiatives, along with family-oriented benefits and policies, to support the retention and advancement of working women and parent attorneys. For example, the firm’s Working Parent Coach Program pairs an attorney coach who is also a working parent with new parents to provide personal support and information about planning for – and transitioning back from – parental leave. In addition, Foley has business and leadership development offerings for women attorneys, including a management development series.
All firms named to the Working Mother “2019 Best Law Firms for Women” ranking will be honored at an awards luncheon on September 19, 2019 at The Peninsula Chicago.
