Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that Working Mother magazine has named the firm among the 2018 Best Law Firms for Women.
For the sixth time and third year in a row, Fox has been acknowledged for its promotion of women, representation of women in leadership positions and flexibility for mothers re-entering the workforce, placing it at the forefront of firms in the retention and advancement of women lawyers.
“It is a true testament to the dedication of our firm and the Women’s Initiative to again be included among the Best Law Firms for Women,” said Lauren P. McKenna and Nancy Yaffe, co-chairs of the firm’s Women’s Initiative. “Fox is committed to the career development and retention of women attorneys and continues to create programs that facilitate the advancement of women throughout its nationwide network of offices. We are thrilled that the firm continues to be recognized for these efforts.”
Fox understands the benefits of a diverse workforce at all levels within the firm, including its leaders. Women lawyers at Fox sit on the firm’s Executive Committee, serve as department chairs and practice group leaders and lead numerous firmwide committees. Currently, one-third of the firm’s offices are led by women attorneys serving in the role of office managing partners.
The firm’s Women’s Initiative works to promote women attorneys within the firm and the legal community. In keeping with its mission, the Initiative offers assistance with connectivity (both internal and external marketing and networking), peer support and mentoring, and assists with the recruitment and career development of women attorneys. The Women’s Initiative is committed to ensuring that women attorneys have the support they need regardless of level, from associate to equity partner and beyond.
Additionally, Fox supports the participation and contribution of its women attorneys to numerous organizations within their local communities, including those committed to women’s interests.
The sought-after Best Law Firms for Women ranking recognizes firms that lead the industry in initiatives for women’s business development and career advancement, plus offer flexible work arrangements and generous paid parental leave, among other important benefits.
The firm will be honored at an awards gala in October at The Peninsula Chicago.
