Hello colleagues, clients, and friends,
Along with my Partners at Lockridge Grindal Nauen, I am proud to announce Working Mother has named our firm among its “Best Law Firms for Women” for 2020, the second consecutive year the firm has received this honor. 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.
I wanted to share a quote from Subha V. Barry, president of Working Mother Media, about the unique factors weighed during consideration to be among the Best Law Firms for Women this year:
“Law firms on this year’s list were better prepared to respond to the effects of the pandemic because of their continued support of flextime and remote work for working parents and caregivers. We are proud to recognize their resilience and steadfast commitment to supporting gender equality.”
For over 40 years, LGN has been committed to building a firm that reflects the diversity of our clients and the communities in which we live and work. We are extremely proud that women make up half of LGN’s attorneys. As we continue to navigate the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to these values and continue to support all of the women and diverse employees at our firm.
We are proud that this latest recognition is one of several Lockridge Grindal Nauen and the firm’s women attorneys have received in recent months. Earlier this year, three of the firm’s women partners were named among the Top 50 Women Super Lawyers in Minnesota. Two were also named Top 100 Minnesota Super Lawyers.
The full list of Best Law Firms for Women, and more about the methodology, is available here.
