Law360 Names Wiley Rein to 2016 List of ‘100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys’

April 18, 2016

Washington DC — Law360 named Wiley Rein LLP to its 2016 list of “The 100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys,” based on a survey of  the firm’s female representation at the partner and non-partner levels, and its total number of female attorneys. Wiley Rein is one of only six firms in the Washington, DC area to make the list this year.

In summarizing the results of the survey, Law360 pointed out that “for the firms that nabbed spots on the list, the number of women at all levels of the firm shows that firm leaders are finding some new ways to open doors and increase diversity.”

Diversity and inclusion is a core component of Wiley Rein’s culture. From our recruitment process to our mentoring programs to our committees and practice groups, we believe in creating an environment where diversity is at the center of all that we do. Firmwide, women serve as either  chair or co‐chair of nearly every firm committee.  Wiley Rein is committed to recruiting and retaining female attorneys through a variety of programs and networking activities, including a Women’s Forum.

For its survey methodology, Law360 ranked firmsbased on four factors: The percentage of partners, both equity and non-equity, who are women; the percentage of non-partners who are women; the split between the firm’s female partner percentage and female non-partner percentage; and the number of female attorneys at the firm.
