Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers have included Kirkland on their list of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women. The honor recognizes U.S. law firms for their family-friendly policies and business development initiatives designed to retain women and advance them into the leadership pipeline.
Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers established the 50 Best Law Firms for Women list in 2007 to celebrate the law firms that are most successful in retaining and promoting women lawyers. In surveying firms for this list, Working Mother measured and assessed firms' representation of women in leadership roles, compensation and benefits, parental leave and flexibility policies, and programs to help train, retain and advance women. Overall treatment of female attorneys and staff was also evaluated.
