MILWAUKEE, WI — The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP today announced the firm has been honored with inclusion in the 2014 list of “Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers.
For several years, Working Mother magazine has honored law firms that demonstrate a respect for and a commitment to work-life balance. The firms on its annual list are committed to compensation and advancement of women, child care, leadership, time off and leave policies, and the development and growth of women in general. Quarles & Brady has made the Best Law Firms list for the last several years.
