NEW YORK, April 19, 2018: Yale Law Women named Morgan Lewis to its annual list of the Top 10 Family Friendly Firms in 2018, as well as its brand new list of Top 10 Female Friendly Firms. Morgan Lewis was one of only four firms named to both lists.
In addition to the two top 10 designations, Morgan Lewis also was recognized for superior performance in multiple specific categories, including: Gender Equity: At Least 50% of Associates Were Women; Parental & Family Accommodations: Highest Percentage of Men Taking Caregiver Leave; and Part-Time & Flex-Time: Highest Percentage of Attorneys Promoted to Partner in 2017 Who Have Worked Part-Time or Flexible Full-Time Schedules.
To produce its annual report, Yale Law Women invited all firms listed in the 2018 Vault Law 100 to participate in a survey on family accommodations, part-time work, and paid leave, as well as indicators of gender equity.
“We’re honored to be included on such a prestigious list of firms that are actually moving the needle on gender equity and family friendliness, not just those that have policies on paper,” said Firm Chair Jami McKeon. “As Firm Chair and a parent myself, I know that it’s possible to deliver exceptional client service in a fast-paced global environment while also structuring our work environment to allow our talented lawyers the flexibility and support to do their best work. That is how we foster collective success.”
