In June 2015, we were awarded the prestigious “Gold Standard Certification” by Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF), signifying our success in elevating women into the firm’s leadership ranks. WILEF is the only initiative directed toward certifying—and broadly celebrating and publicizing—eligible law firms that have integrated women into their highest leadership positions. The certification is based on six criteria that look at the percentages of women holding various leadership positions, such as equity partners, firm chair and managing partners, and members of the firm’s governance committee.

“We believe that our firm will continue to be most successful if we attract and retain the most talented people and permit them to work in an environment that is motivating and supportive. We have a welcoming and inclusive environment, where anyone with talent, energy, and desire can succeed—a true meritocracy.” ─Jami Wintz McKeon
