April 19, 2015

Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP was recently ranked #44 by Law360 in an article titled "The 100 Best Law Firms For Female Attorneys."  Law360 ranked 100 law firms, based on their female representation at the partner and nonpartner levels and its total number of female attorneys.

Law360 surveyed 308 U.S. firms, or vereins with a U.S. component, about their overall and female head count numbers as of Dec. 31, 2014. Only U.S.-based attorneys were included in the survey. All the firms were ranked 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
  4. The number of female attorneys at the firm

According to Law360's 2015 Glass Ceiling Report, 33 percent of all attorneys and 22 percent of partners at U.S. law firms are women. At many of these 100 firms, there are more female nonpartners than male, a rich potential pipeline of future female equity partners and executive committee members.
