Law360 Ranks Quarles & Brady Among the Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys

MILWAUKEE — Quarles & Brady is pleased to announce that the firm has once again been ranked #2 in Law360’s 2019 Glass Ceiling Report for firms with 300 to 599 lawyers, placing the firm on its list of Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys. This national ranking reflects Quarles & Brady’s efforts to create programs and policies that underpin sustainable careers for women. The firm was also ranked tenth by Law360 for best law firms for female equity partners with 300 – 599 attorneys.

Quarles & Brady has consistently been named a top law firm for women, including a top ranking for “Diversity for Women” from Vault Guide to the Top 100 Law Firms; Gold Standard Certification from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum; and among the “Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother each year since 2013. Additionally, the firm’s chair, Kimberly Leach Johnson, is one of the few women to lead a firm of this size.

"We are thrilled to once again be recognized for our efforts in supporting our female attorneys," said firm chair, Kimberly Leach Johnson. "As a firm we’re committed to developing all of our attorneys. Having a diverse workplace is not only important to our culture, but also to our clients.”

Law360’s 2019 Glass Ceiling Report shows the progress that law firms are making towards female representation at all levels, from associate to equity partner. Firms are grouped based on their U.S. attorney head count in order to compare them with similarly sized firms. Firms that had below-average female representation at any level were excluded. The remaining firms are ranked by their percentage of female non-partners and partners.
