Locals fare well on ‘Best Firms for Women’ list

Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers LLC, a consulting outfit, have published for the first time a list of “The Best Law Firms for Women.”

Fifty firms nationally were named, based on an application that covered issues important “to the retention and promotion of women lawyers.” Those topics included workforce profile, benefits and compensation, parental leave, child care, flexibility and retention and advancement of women.

Two of the big firms based in Richmond, Hunton & Williams and McGuireWoods, made the list.

And a number of DC-based firms, some of whom have Virginia offices, were on there as well:
Arnold & Porter
Covington & Burling
Dickstein & Shapiro
Hogan & Hartson
Miller & Chevalier Chartered
Patton Boggs
Sidley Austin

Other firms on the list were based in different locales, but have offices here in the Old Dominion:
DLA Piper US, New York
Morrison & Foerster, San Francisco
Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, New York
Reed Smith, Pittsburgh
Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, Winston-Salem, NC
