Quarles & Brady Named to az magazine’s Top Workplaces for Women Hall of Fame 2012

PHOENIX, ARIZ. - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that the Firm's Arizona offices have been named to AZ magazine and Best Companies AZ Top Workplaces for Women inaugural Hall of Fame. The Firm receives this recognition as one of four companies who lead their respective fields in best practices and progressive women's initiatives. These recognitions come in response to the Firm's nomination in the annual "Top 25 Workplaces for Women" survey that came out earlier this year.

For more than 15 years, az magazine has honored employers that have set the standard for women initiatives in the workplaces. Decisions were based on benefits and programs offered to all employees, company culture, dedication to building and improving a female-friendly workplace and the strength in the number of women in power positions. All companies will be recognized at a breakfast in March.

"This honor is visible recognition of the value we place on each of our attorneys and associates," said Jon Pettibone, Managing Partner of Quarles & Brady's Phoenix office. "We make every effort to create the best possible, and most flexible, workplace while serving our clients and the community."

Quarles & Brady was recognized for instituting such programs as the 'Women's Forum,' which offers a wide variety of informal and formal mentoring between the Firm's associates and partners to share best practices and ideas through panels on various topics. Another program, 'Ease Back In' helps keep new moms on the partner track with Quarles & Brady's onsite emergency daycare to help progressively ramp up to part-time or full-time work again.
