Wood, Smith, Henning & Berman celebrates a long history of recruiting, supporting and promoting women lawyers in the workplace. 48% of the attorneys at our firm are women. Our women attorneys serve as thought leaders, commanding litigators and sought-after counselors guiding our clients around the world. Women find success at WSHB because the firm fosters a culture of inclusion with opportunities for promotion and advancement to partnership. In fact, 38.4% of our partners are women. In addition, many of our women attorneys serve in positions of leadership within the firm as well as in their outside communities.
WSHB is not new to placing value on gender equity. The firm has long been recognized as a leader in this area; blazing the trail before others even thought to make it a focus. WSHB has been nationally recognized on several occasions for this commitment. Most recently, the firm ranked ninth on the National Law Journal's 2023 Women in Law Scorecard.
Although as a firm we are exceedingly proud of our recognition for gender equity, our day-to-day practice is where our victory actually lies and ultimately speaks for itself.
