LeClairRyan Recognized in Top 100 Firms for Female Attorneys

04/20/2016

LeClairRyan is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized as one of the 100 best law firms for female attorneys in Law360’s second annual ranking. LeClairRyan was also ranked in the 2015 inaugural list.

The rankings stem from the results of Law360’s survey of more than 300 U.S. firms, or vereins with a U.S. component, about their overall and female head count numbers as of December 31, 2015. Only U.S.-based attorneys were included in the survey. The rankings are based on four factors: 1) the percentage of partners, both equity and nonequity, who are women; 2) the percentage of nonpartners who are women; 3) the split between the firm's female partner percentage and female nonpartner percentage; and 4) the number of female attorneys at the firm.

The survey, done in conjunction with Law360’s annual Glass Ceiling Report, found that at many of the top 100 firms there are more female nonpartners than male, and a rich potential pipeline of future female equity partners and executive committee members.
