Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers have put Michigan's Honigman Miller on its 2013 list of 50 Best Law Firms for Women. An executive summary suggests that women are making progress toward equity in the law firm setting. The award list is determined on the basis of applications that ask 300 questions about workforce representation, time off and leaves, child care, flexibility, leadership, compensation and advancement of women, and development and retention of women. The winning firms, according to Working Mother and Flex-time Lawyers, lead the industry in supporting flexible work arrangements and offering generous paid parental leave, and ensure that lawyers who take advantage of family friendly programs are not excluded from the partnership or leadership track.
Here are key Honigman stats that earned it recognition:
- Female Equity Partners 18%
- Female Nonequity Partners 30%
- Lawyers Working Reduced Hours 6%
Milwaukee-based Foley and Lardner, with 34 attorneys in its Michigan office, also earned a spot on the list.
