Lockridge Grindal Nauen is proud to announce Working Mother has named our firm among its “Best Law Firms for Women” for 2019. This recognition, given to only 60 firms throughout the country, signifies that LGN is a firm that uses best practices to recruit, retain, promote and develop women attorneys. To determine which firms are included in the list, the Working Mother Research Institute considers attorney demographics at different levels, schedule flexibility, paid time off and parental leaves, and development and retention of women.
“LGN has long been committed to building a firm that reflects the diversity of our community as well as the clients we serve. We are extremely proud that women make up half of LGN’s attorneys,” said Harry Gallaher, the firm’s managing partner. “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we have reaffirmed this commitment and our continued support of all the women and diverse employees at our firm.”
“It’s heartening to see the progress women lawyers are making at firms committed to fully utilizing these attorneys’ abilities,” said Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. “The war for talent is increasing incentives for law firms to invest in retaining women lawyers, which is why we’re seeing more women’s initiatives and parental-support groups. By highlighting what our top firms are doing, we hope others in the legal community will follow.”
This latest recognition is one of several Lockridge Grindal Nauen and the firm’s women attorneys have received in recent months. The firm was recently named one of the seven best mid-sized firms for women attorneys in the country according to Law360’s Glass Ceiling Report. The report recognized firms for having above-average female representation among both partner and non-partner attorneys.
Additionally, just last week, four of the firm’s women partners were named among the Top 50 Women Super Lawyers in Minnesota. Three were also named Top 100 Minnesota Super Lawyers.
